This weekend I had two treats at a friend’s dinner party. First, a 1988 Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky with two ice cubes just to chase that burn away and let the flavor of the whisky surface…… It was delicious!!! The second treat was an IPA from Full Sail Brewery. I highly recommend both if buying a gift for a Scotch Whisky fans and Indian Pale Ale lovers!!!
This week, I’d like to share two more alcoholic treats, the Strawberry Shortcake Spiked Shake and Almond Joy Martini.
Strawberry Shortcake Spiked Shake:
- ¾ oz. Pinnacle Cake Vodka
- ¾ oz. Amaretto Liqueur
- ¼ cup frozen strawberries, thawed
- ½ cup vanilla ice cream
- ½ cup crushed ice
- Whipped cream
- Crushed Graham crackers
Place thawed frozen strawberries, amaretto liqueur, vanilla ice cream, crushed ice, and vanilla vodka into a blender. Cover and blend until smooth. Pour into a glass and garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle crushed graham crackers over the top.
Almond Joy Martini:
- 1 oz. Chocolate Vodka
- ½ oz. Frangelico Liqueur
- ½ oz. White Crème de Cacao
- 1 oz. Piña Colada Mix
- ¾ oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
- Hersey’s Chocolate syrup
Take martini glass and drizzle chocolate syrup inside the glass and store in freezer to chill. Add all ingredients into a martini shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Then, trickle the Godiva over or down the round back side (convex side) of a bar spoon or teaspoon (not down the handle) into the glass while keeping the spoon end against or very near the wall of the glass. The end of the spoon should also be kept above and near the bottom or previous layer. The ingredient should flow gently down the side of the glass and onto the previous layer.
DRINK RESPONSIBLE & DRINK SMART!!!
