Friday Night Cocktails...#ChoctoberfestwithImperialSugar

Woohooo we made it through 5 days of Choctoberfest but we are not done yet....we are going right through the weekend.  That means 7 full days of Chocolatey Goodness.  And that, my friends, is a very good thing as Martha Stewart would say.  That means you only have 3 more days to enter to win some great prizes from our wonderful sponsors.  You can read all about our sponsors and enter the giveaway in my Welcome to Choctober post.

Because it is Friday and because we have been having so much fun I decided to celebrate today with a wonderful, Almond Joy Martini.  Now, if you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that it is Frank and not I that creates the cocktails around here.  He created this one as well.  I tell him what I want, he experiments, I taste, he experiments, I taste and then when it is perfect I write about it and I take all the credit.  It's called marriage people!!  Okay, maybe there was a little too much tasting going on and I am a wee bit punchy LOL.


I told Frank we were celebrating all things chocolate this week and would he please create for me a cocktail that would fit the bill.  Now Frank makes a mean Chocolate Mint Martini and an absolutely delicious Milky Way Martini but those have been previously discussed here so I needed something new.  So, Frank being the wonderful, loving husband that he is pulled out all of my favorite alcohol. Ciroc Coconut, Disaronno Amaretto and Godiva Chocolate Liquor. Then he announced that he was creating for me an Almond Joy Martini and asked for chocolate syrup and coconut with which to rim the glass.  Unfortunately I had no coconut.


So he made do without and instead of rimming the glasses he added a ring of chocolate to mix in with the drink itself and......It is heaven in a glass.  If you are an Almond Joy junkie like me....you are going to love this drink.  May I offer a toast to the ladies from the PinterTest Kitchen, who have worked so hard making this event a success!

  3. I've never heard of coconut vodka, but that sounds like it'd definitely be tastier than some of the other options out there! :] These look really good!
