30 Days of Beverages - Day 16 - Sweet!

For the past 5 years or so the trend toward fancy-schmancy flavored martinis has been on the rise. Generally I steer clear, but as you saw with the Key Lime Pie Martini, sometimes you come across a winner! So every now and then I'll hear about a martini that sounds so good that I can't resist....Day 16's drink was just such a cocktail.

I really thought this would be a sweet drink, but was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not particularly sweet and was absolutely delish! I don't think this is one of those cocktails that you could drink all night, but one or two to finish an evening would be divine!

Without further ado....let me present....The Snickertini -

It all started with this -

And one of these -

And ends up looking like this -

1 1/2 shots Vanilla Vodka
1 shot Frangelico
1 shot Godiva Liqueur

Mix with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into a prechilled glass. Garnish with bite sized Snickers.

YEA! I am so pleased to have this recipe. Your brother made this drink for us a few years ago and we loved them! It is a great fun drink especially for or instead of dessert!
