A tasty alternative to the traditional champagne and strawberries.
1 part vanilla
2 parts raspberries
2 parts whiskey
3 parts triple sec
Dark chocolate orange wedges
Places raspberries and 1 chocolate wedge in each glass. Pour remaining ingredients in the top of a double boiler and warm (not too hot). Pour into glasses over raspberries and chocolate. Mash raspberries with a spoon. Warming the liquids helps to blend and mellow the flavors and partially melts the chocolate. If you do not have a double boiler you can improvise by using 2 sauce pans or a sauce pan and a ramekin (ramekin on top). If you can’t find a chocolate orange use a piece
of dark chocolate.
