As a breast cancer survivor, I know first-hand the power of art and creative expression…
The Pink Kiss cocktail combines the decadent flavors of chocolate and cinnamon with the refreshing notes of raspberry. It’s light, sparkling, and the perfect kiss to share with your special someone.
Recently, I was asked to create a new signature cocktail in honor of the 2017 “For the Love of Cocktails.” This annual Las Vegas event celebrates the best in mixology by bringing together the finest mixologists, cocktail bars and chefs. But it’s more than just a celebration. It’s also a 72-hour fundraiser for breast cancer awareness which as you know is a subject near and dear to my heart.
The Pink Kiss – A Chocolate Cinnamon Raspberry Cocktail
In honor of this important cause, I created the Pink Kiss. The Pink Kiss combines chocolate vodka, Goldshlager cinnamon liqueur, fresh raspberry puree, and a bit of sparkle. I wanted to create a drink that was light yet still felt luxurious and special. This drink is perfect for Valentine’s Day, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or just any day you want to celebrate something with a kiss.
It also contains fresh raspberries which are heart healthy and rich in antioxidants.
- 1 part Chocolate Vodka
- 1/2 part Goldshlager
- 1/4 cup raspberries
- Optional: seltzer or sparkling Moscato
- Muddle your raspberries. You can do this directly in the martini shaker. If you don’t have a cocktail muddle, you can crush the berries in a bowl with a fork and then add them to the shaker.
- Add the chocolate vodka and the Goldshlager with ice in your martini shaker. Shake well and pour into glass.
- Next, add the Sparkle!
- Depending on your taste–you could either add seltzer water or sparkling Moscato. The seltzer water will give it more a light spritzer taste while the sparkling Moscato will give it a deeper finish.
If I were going to attend this event, I would love to see Giada de Laurentis. I love her fresh cocktail style. She always uses fresh ingredients instead of pre-made mixers like myself. I also love how she often puts a new modern twist on a classic favorite.
