TIP: Everyone has a different preference in regards to what is “too sweet” or “not sweet enough.” We try to strike a balance to please everyone, but if the cocktail is not to your liking, here are some options.

 

  • Not Sweet Enough: You can add a little sugar or agave syrup. This is a great option for margaritas, sangrias, etc. For margaritas, you can also try adding a bit of orange juice, pineapple juice or even grenadine if you have them on hand.

 

  • Too Sweet: Maybe the cocktail is too sweet (this Valentine’s menu is DECADENT), so if you need to decrease the sugary taste, you can add club soda – ideal for sangria, or even margaritas. Water is a great option as well. If you want to lessen the sweet taste of a chocolate or dessert drink, that is tougher to do, but can be achieved by adding more of a less sweet liquor (ie. vodka, rum, tequila) if you have that on hand.

 

Orange Chocolate Margaritas

Due to supply shortages, we were unable to get clear Creme de Cacao. Don’t worry, that won’t change the taste of your margaritas! BUT we did update the presentation of the cocktail and swapped out clear Creme de Cacao with Dark Creme de Cacao. If we pre-mixed the dark Creme de Cacao, your margarita would still taste delicious, but the color might be less than ideal.

Instead of adding the dark Creme de Cacao to your margaritas, we added it on the side in a sealed carafe. Here is how we recommend serving your orange chocolate margaritas: 

 

  1. Fill serving glasses with ice
  2. Stir carafe with pre-mixed margaritas
  3. Pour margarita mix over ice (allowing enough room to add Creme de Cacao on top)
  4. Then, take the carafe of dark Creme de Cacao and pour a splash on top of your margarita
  5. The dark liqueur will sink to the bottom, creating a “layering” affect – so your margarita should have the brown color on the bottom, and the lighter color on top.
  6. Grab your dark chocolate shavings and sprinkle them on top of your margarita
  7. Top with one dehydrated orange garnish.
  8. Sip and enjoy!

    Chocolate Cherry Sangria

    Lucky for you, this is a very simple cocktail to serve!

    1. Fill serving glasses with ice
    2. Stir chocolate cherry sangria in carafe
    3. Pour over ice
    4. Sip and Enjoy!

 


White Strawberry Sangria + Classic Red/White Sangria

 

    1. Add desired amount of fresh fruit garnish to glass
    2. Add ice cubes after adding fruit
    3. Stir white strawberry sangria in carafe
    4. Pour over ice
    5. Sip and Enjoy!

 


Chocolate Martinis

These cocktail can be served “up” as a martini or over ice. Your choice!

    1. Select your preferred glass
    2. Dip rim of glass in simple syrup to coat it (provided in clear container in your cocktail kit bag)
    3. Then, dip rim of glass in crushed chocolate cookie crumbles (provided in your cocktail kit bag)
    4. Set glass upright
    5. If serving as a martini, pour premixed chocolate martini into glass without ice (make sure to keep your cocktails chilled)
    6. If serving over ice, add ice to rimmed glass and pour chocolate martini mix over ice
    7. Garnish with shaved chocolate.
    8. Sip and Enjoy!

The old fashioned is a cocktail made by muddling sugar cubes with chocolate bitters and water, adding bourbon and garnishing with orange slice and a cocktail cherry. It is traditionally served in an old fashioned glass, which predated the cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz Bourbon or Rye whiskey
  • 1 Sugar Cube
  • 2 dashes Chocolate Bitters
  • Few dashes Plain Water
  • Amarena Cherries
  • Orange Slices

Preparation: 

1. Place sugar cube in old fashioned glass and saturate with bitters, add a dash of plain water.
2. Muddle (smush with a muddler or spoon until dissolved).
3. Fill the glass with ice cubes and add Jack Daniels Garnish with orange slice, and an Amarena cherry (we provided small packets containing 2 Amarena cherries).
See? Easy as 1-2-3! 

Optional:

When muddling the chocolate bitters and sugar cubes, add orange slice and Amarena cherry together. Then, top with ice cubes and pour Jack Daniels over ice. Enjoy!

Orange Crushes

This refreshing drink is made of orange vodka, triple sec, sprite and fresh-squeezed orange juice. You can order it skinny as well, which replaces the sprite with club soda. You can also hold the triple sec if you want it less sweet.

Ingredients:

  • Orange Vodka
  • Triple Sec
  • Sprite

We mix everything in the sealed carafe, with the exception of the fresh squeezed orange juice. We do however, provide the sliced oranges on the side so you can just pour your cocktail over ice, and squeeze the orange on top.
