I had my girlfriend & fellow foodie Tammy come over last night. She's going through a difficult time right now so it was an emotional visit but we managed to get some good bites in, a little bit of laughter & a whole lotta Grey Goose.
We started out with the normal Vodka & Tonics as we snacked on some sushi I picked up on the way home, as well as some pita chips & hummus. But as the night was drawing to a close we had a new dessert cocktail I threw together, to go with the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut cookies I made.
Tammy enjoying what I am calling the Choco-Coco Martini. Recipe below.
Now, I am taking a BIG RISK & may get disqualified from the Martini Party competition over at Molly's, who once told me to "slowly step away from the Stirrings" martini mixes but I was in the mood for something different & picked up something on the fly.
I find most chocolate martinis to be too sweet so I picked up some coconut water (in the mixed drinks aisle) & used it with the chocolate martini mix. The result: very enjoyable, one is perfect & not overly sweet. Use of coconut or another flavoring you like was ideal!!!
1 part Grey Goose Vodka
1 part Stirrings Chocolate Martini Mix
1 part Coconut Water (comes in a can)
Mix all in a cocktail shaker over ice. Strain and fill your martini glass. Enjoy, while talking about how things will get better, how I'll be right here for you, how you will be strong & get through, & how much I love you !!! Oh sorry............this one's for you Tammy!!!!
