Valentine’s Day is this weekend and decided to prepare a Mexican Kiss Cocktail with Godiva® Dark Chocolate liqueur, tequila, evaporated milk and maraschino cherries.
At upscale restaurants in Mexico, serving a Coffee Kiss Cocktail to end a meal was a common offering. Getting inspiration from the original recipe I have created a sweet and velvety cocktail with dark chocolate liquor from Godiva.
- 3 oz of Godiva® Dark Chocolate liqueur (1.5 oz per glass)
- 1 oz of white tequila (0.5 oz per glass)
- 1 cup of evaporated milk
- 6 maraschino cherries
- 2 bamboo sticks
- 2 glasses 6 oz each
- In a glass add 1.5 oz of Godiva® Dark Chocolate liqueur, then add 0.5 oz of white tequila and combine.
- Slowly add the evaporated milk, using around 4 oz depending on taste.
- Finish decorating with three maraschino cherries per glass.
Godiva chocolates were my mom’s favorite treat so when I was offered to develop a recipe for a sweet cocktail using Godiva’s Dark Chocolate Liqueur was a must for me to do as I am a Godiva chocolate fan too. Besides who doesn’t love chocolate and a tasty sweet treat to enjoy with your special someone.
Valentine’s Day for me is an everyday thing. I think we need to celebrate and care for those we love daily basis. Nurturing your marriage or your romantic relationship should be done daily. It is like taking care of a plant, if we don’t water it, it will die. Same thing happens with love, we need to nurture it so that it will grow strong and beautiful.
Taking Valentine’s Day as an excuse prepare a yummy dinner for two this weekend and as a surprise serve this Mexican Kiss Cocktail to cheer for love and happiness while bonding and making plans for the future.
This cocktail is elegant, creamy and sweet. If you are a chocolate lover you need to try it, but remember all with moderation. Godiva has an array of yummy options for us chocolate lovers, buy a box of your favorite Godiva chocolates and enjoy while sipping this Mexican Kiss Cocktail, perfect dessert drink for a romantic dinner for two.
The Godiva® Chocolate Liqueur is perfect addition to your bar at home. You can use this liqueur for cooking desserts and for drink recipes like this Mexican Kiss Cocktail.
Cheers and happy Valentine’s Day!
