The Checkerboard cocktail is another variation on that noble tradition: cocktails that taste like chocolate milkshakes. This one uses amaretto for a distinctive touch. All milkshakes should be so blessed.

Enjoy a Checkerboard whenever you want a chocolate milkshake with a kick. This drink is also great for mixing and serving in bulk when you’ve got guests. Or just make a pitcher for yourself – each serving is two ounces of alcohol, so not much stronger than a standard drink.
