Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordial Cocktail

The Chocolate Covered Cherry Cordial is the consummate Valentine's cocktail.  It's perfectly sweet and chocolaty with just the right touch of cherry, like a cherry cordial in a glass.  Pick up a dozen roses and the ingredients for this romantic drink and sweep your sweetie off their feet tonight!

Valentine's Day is very special to Chad and I.  However rather than getting sucked into the crowded restaurants we take the night at home.  Our favorite dinner and cocktails.  Something sweet for me?  Yes!  Pour me a Cherry Cordial Cocktail please. 

I know your mouth is watering just looking at that fantastically scrumptious cocktail. The cocktail starts with a chocolate swirled cocktail glass and only gets better from there.  Cherry vodka and chocolate liqueur create a flavor explosion.

The Chocolate Covered Cherry Cocktail is absolutely the best Valentine's Day present!  Who needs a box of chocolates when you can have this luscious chocolate cherry cocktail. 

Kick off your heels and pour yourself one tonight!
