A Valentine Cocktail

Feb 11, 2013 08:49AM
The Agave Kiss is a fun cocktail invented by the Herradura Tequila company.  For Valentine’s Day, it has all the elements we’re looking for when it comes to romancing our loved one – chocolate, raspberries, heavy cream, and of course, liquor.

Tequila is a distilled spirit from Mexico that is made from the agave plant; most of us are familiar with tequila in margaritas. Herradura Tequila Silver is used in this recipe, because it is light in color and pairs well with the cream. It’s easy to make, goes down smoothly, and tastes divine. It’s also an impressive and beautiful cocktail, and you could use it in place of a dessert course. Enjoy!

For each cocktail, place the following ingredients in a shaker with crushed ice:

2 oz. Herradura Tequila Silver

1 oz. White Crème de Cocoa

1 oz. heavy cream

½ oz. Chambord (raspberry liquor)

Shake well and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with fresh raspberries on a cocktail pick.
