Chocolate Covered Cherry 

Favorite Restaurant Drink Recipe

This restaurant Chocolate Liqueur Recipe is "dessert in a glass." Any occasion will be special when you serve this beverage.

A number of the restaurant guests like this so much they nominated it as a favorite restaurant drink recipe.

In America, this Chocolate Covered Cherry cocktail "qualifies" as a "cordial."

The terms “Cordial” and “liqueur” (USA) often mean the same thing. Many people use the term “cordial” for dessert-like liqueurs that are sweet and flavored with cream, chocolate and similar products. A sweet cordial such as this recipe is most often enjoyed after dinner.

I recommend serving this Chocolate Covered Cherry in a champagne flute or martini glass.

Why is this restaurant drink recipe called a "Chocolate Covered Cherry?" Read the recipe and pay attention to the usual garnishes. :-)
