I hope you’re all using this day to indulge yourself a little bit. I mean, that’s what it’s really all about, right? My husband gave me some beautiful Black South Seas Pearl Earrings this year – I’ve been wearing them all day and wishing he were here with us! I also bought myself some flowers because I just love fresh flowers on occasion, and I’ve learned that I should just buy them myself instead of waiting to get them as a gift. Little Miss and I are really enjoying them! I got mostly purple ones since that’s one of her favorite colors.
If I weren’t so stuffy, I’d treat myself to this yummy martini tonight. Instead, I’ll be indulging in decongestant, and maybe a little chocolate!
This martini gives a great chocolate taste without being too sweet.
- 3/4 ounce Amaretto (Brandy will work too)
- 3/4 ounce Crème de Cocoa
- 3/4 ounce Chocolate Vodka (I used 360)
- splash of ginger syrup (optional)
- 3/4 ounce (or more) milk of your choosing
Put all ingredients in a shaker. Shake well and pour into a chilled martini glass.
If you happen to have some shaved chocolate laying around, by all means sprinkle that on top.
