Thirsty Thursday: Chocolate Mandarin Dream

Happy Thursday morning to everyone.  If you have had as busy of a week as it has been around here, then you are ready for this weekends games and a good drink.  This weeks Thirsty Thursday will not disappoint.

The original recipe comes from Fine Living.  We found it a bit too strong, so we made some minor modifications.

This recipe is for one drink, so multiply accordingly.

Chocolate Mandarin Dream

1 1/2 oz. Mandarin Absolut Vodka
1 1/2 oz. Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
1/4 oz. Mandarin Napoleon Liqueur
Cocoa Powder
Dark Chocolate Shavings
Orange Wedges

Cut your orange into thin slices.  These will be used to rim your glasses with cocoa and garnish.
Take your orange wedge and run it around the lip of your glass.

Take the orange coated rim and coat it with cocoa powder.

Looking good so far!

Add the Mandarin Absolut, Godiva White Chocolate, and the Mandarin Napoleon to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake until well mixed.

Serve in your chocolate rimmed glass.

Use some of the other wedges to garnish your glass.

All that's left is to enjoy!

Next Thursday we will be featuring a warm drink to share around your outdoor fire pit on a cool fall evening.
