Thirsty Thursday’s Chocolate Strawberry Shot

23 Jun

A friend of mine gave me a bottle of the new Godiva chocolate-infused vodka. It’s very tasty. You wouldn’t know the crystal clear liquid provides a velvety smooth chocolate flavor. I’ve mixed it a couple of ways but have found that it’s best super-chilled and all by itself. Well, almost…

This is a perfect after dinner bev!

First, muddle strawberries (one per glass) and place into shot glasses.

You can use whatever small, shot-like glasses you have.

Pour 1.5 ounces of the Godiva Chocolate-infused vokda.

Place on a tray and set in the freezer until ready to serve just don’t let the berry freeze.

Serve!     Sip!     Enjoy!
