Cioccolato e cocco

Cioccolato e Cocco Cocktail Recipe

“Cioccolato e cocco” is Italian and means “chocolate and coconut” in English. That’s the flavor you get with this cocktail. This is a terrifically tasty drink that balances the sweetness of coconut rum and creme de cacao with milk, heavy cream and cream of coconut. That makes it a little more subtle and sophisticated than […]

Reindeer Tracks Martini

Reindeer Tracks Martini

The Reindeer Tracks Martini is a delicious blend of chocolate vodka, Frangelico and creme de cacao. Chocolate and a hint of hazelnut are so easy to love together. For the cookie crumble garnish, I recommend scraping the cream filling out of Oreos, because the chocolate part of an Oreo grinds up very fine and clings […]

Candy Cane Martini

Almond Chocolate Coffee

Almond Chocolate Coffee

The Almond Chocolate Coffee cocktail blends amaretto, creme de cacao and hot coffee. The result is just what the name implies – an almond chocolate coffee drink that’s hard to resist. This is one of those drinks that’s so easy to make, it’s like why would you pour yourself a cup of coffee and not […]


M&M cocktail

The M&M cocktail is exactly what you’d expect: a candy drink that tastes a lot like an M&M in a glass. But it’s not just chocolate liqueurs or anything so obvious. You wouldn’t expect a drink containing frangelico to taste like an M&M, but if you think about it there’s a bit more to the […]

Junior Mint

Junior Mint cocktail

The Junior Mint cocktail tastes exactly like you’d expect – very much like a Junior Mint candy. You can even leave out the Malibu rum, which adds just a hint of something rich that’s hard to pin down as coconut in the overall flavor. Personally, I think the touch of Malibu rum adds something essential. […]


Light greenish cocktail over ice in tall glass with pineapple wedge and cocktail umbrella

There are a number of  cocktails out there calling themselves the Tropicana, but this is the recipe that calls for a touch of creme de cacao. Oh, yes – this one is different from the others. The overall flavor here is fruity, but it definitely has that kind of flavor that you have to think […]


Clear cocktail in martini glass, dark pink background

The Ninotchka is an interesting combination of flavors: chocolate with just a touch of lemon. The lemon is very light – it just cuts back the sweetness of the creme de cacao. This drink is like a chocolate candy in a glass, but with a fascinating little something extra from the lemon. It’s nice as […]

Lucy’s cocktail

Red cocktail in tall glass against patterned bamboo background

Lucy’s cocktail blends vodka with creme de menthe and creme de cacao. Just from the ingredients, you know it’s going to be good. It tastes like a chocolate mint candy. Not a peppermint patty – this is the less bracing sort of mint, like you find in Andes candies. So many sweet cocktails are either […]
