Clover Cocktail

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I have already shared an Irish-themed main meal, bread, baked good, and sweet treat so I thought this time around a drink was in order! Fine Wine & Good Spirits sent me this really yummy spin on an Irish coffee called the Clover Cocktail, which is frozen instead of hot. Ingredients (makes 1 serving; multiply as needed): 1 oz. Irish whiskey 1 oz. Baileys Irish Cream 1 oz. KahlĂșa 1 oz. espresso 1 cup ice (~6 ice cubes) whipped cream chocolate shavings

Bourbon Truffles

Here is another recipe I made for New Year’s Eve. I have actually made this a few times and have altered it slightly from the original Williams-Sonoma recipe to suit my tastes. I lowered the amount of bourbon so that there is a hint to enhance the flavor of the chocolate without overpowering. (The first round of making these it was like taking a shot with every bite, whew!) I also kept having trouble with the coating (my chocolate kept seizing) so I’ve altered that a bit to make a smoother coating that’s easier to work with. Ingredients: 1/4 cup heavy cream 4 Tbs. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 6 oz. milk chocolate chips 6 oz. semisweet chocolate chips 3 tablespoons bourbon whiskey Cocoa powder for dusting Coating: 12 oz. semisweet chocolate chips 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter sprinkles, for garnish, if desired
