Sweet AND Hot

What better way to indulge this holiday season than with a spicy chocolate cocktail created by Southern Wine and SpiritsDirector of Mixolog, Francesco Lafranconi, who has won
numerous drink-related awards and teaches a 12-week Academy of Spirits and Fine Service Course.

Francesco was kind enough to allow me to share his creative drink recipe featuring quality ingredients and layered flavors with The Liquid Muse Sipsters. (Talk about giving holiday entertaining an extra kick!) I know what I’m leaving next to the chimney for Santa, this year…

The Chocopotle
1 oz Grand Marnier
1 oz Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur
1 oz Cruzan Single Barrel
2 drops Tabasco Chipotle Sauce

Stir all ingredients together with ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass previously rinsed with few drops of Herbsaint. Garnish with orange zest.
