I know I just did a plain old manicure post yesterday and not a Cocknails video. Sorry about that, dudes, but the videos take a lot of time and effort and I had a severe case of the blahs this week, so it didn’t happen.
I do have a cocktail for you today, though, so just smash today’s post and yesterday’s post together in your mind and pretend, ok? It’s even a Valentine-themed cocktail, because I love you. Ahhn.
This is a chocolate raspberry truffle cocktail.
I told you I don’t really like Valentine’s Day, but who doesn’t love delicious chocolatey cocktails? I’ll get in the spirit for that.
Now, you’re really supposed to have some kind of fancy schmancy chocolate liqueur for this and also “premium” vodka. I worked with what I had.
I’m also not sure that Reddiwip is quite in the spirit of this, but hell if I was going to make “fresh” whipped cream.
This recipe did, however, make two cocktails, so I lovingly also prepared one for my significant other.
And the cocktail was then rejected by said significant other. Fine, dude. But if you think you’re getting something other than a questionable Pintester cocktail for Valentine’s Day, you may possibly be mistaken.
And so I had to drink them both myself. I had to. There was no other choice. They were delicious, by the way, and I drank them enthusiastically… and a little too fast.
So, then, for Valentine’s Day, my significant other also got begged repeatedly to take me to the drug store because I neeeeeeeded some Doritos and please-please-please I’m way too drunk to go by myself and I neeeeeeed Doritos. (I was rejected again, just so you know.)
Anyway, happy Valentine’s Day, and I hope your significant other actually appreciates it when you test possibly disgusting cocktails on him and then drink his for him and then drunkenly demand that he take you to the store to buy Doritos.
