Celebrate Your Day with a Tasty Cocktail!! Lots of Sweet Choices Make for an Easy Sip!

Did you know October was known for more than just harvest, fall fashions and Halloween? It’s National Dessert MONTH!! Yes– an entire month to celebrate desserts. Now I wonder how many calories we would add into the mix if we had a new dessert every day. (Don’t ask– unless you split the dessert 4 ways and don’t finish it)

Here’s a different form of dessert for you to use to celebrate the month, the downward slope of the work-week and also Halloween!!

Iced Chocolate Cake **Only 137 calories!

1 oz. Frangelico

1 oz. SKYY Infusions Citrus
Combine in a short rocks glass. Add an orange or lime twist.

(Ok.. so I gave you the low calorie dessert first and you don’t even have to share it!)

Here’s a cocktail that’s not low-calorie.

2 oz. Flor De Caña 7-year Grand Reserve
4 mint leaves

1 scoop chocolate ice cream

½ oz. vanilla syrup

½ oz. Licor 43

Caramel foam**
Pour all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake for 20 seconds. Serve over chilled martini glass.
Top with layer of caramel foam.

Recipe for caramel foam:
