Friday’s Feature Cocktail: Your Chocolate Fix

So as I explained yesterday, I’ve probably eaten well worth my weight in chocolate eggs before Easter even rolls in to celebrate (I’m actually a “Member of the Tribe” so Easter is all about the candy for me 😉 ).

But to allow myself a sweet treat, I wanted to create a drink recipe that uses Hiram Walker’s Créme de Cacao with a lightly fruitful component – the Créme de Banana! Along with a small splash of Kahlua, this drink definitely called for the use of Cream to balance the otherwise immensely sweet flavors.

What resulted is what I would consider a Hiram “Simpletini” – a cocktail recipe using a minimal number of ingredients in an easy-to-deliver service method. I hope you’ll enjoy this one as you spend time with family and friends this weekend.

Chocolate Banana cocktail:

  • 1/2 part Hiram Walker Créme de Banana
  • 1/2 part Hiram Walker White Créme de Cacao
  • Splash Kahlua
  • 1-2 parts Cream

Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with shavings of semisweet chocolate and serve.
Cheers!

  1. Hi Stephanie!

    Here’s another Eastery (is that even a word?) cocktail for you, right out of Patrick Gavin Duffy’s “The Official Mixer’s Manual” (1956 ed) It seems to follow the same basic chocolate/fruit liqueur/cream formula:

    Purple Bunny

    1 jigger Cherry Brandy
    1/3 jigger Creme de Cacao
    2/3 jigger Cream

    Shake well with ice and strain into a large cocktail glass
