Back Burner

If you’ve ever felt chocolate milk was missing a little something, the Back Burner cocktail might be your answer. How about tequila?

But in case tequila and chocolate milk don’t sound like a match made in heaven, the Back Burner also includes a touch of Galliano, a “marrying” ingredient that doesn’t add any particular flavor but  just kind of makes the other ingredients play nice. Enjoy a Back Burner as a dessert replacement, or anytime you’re craving chocolate milk but need a margarita.
