Chocolate Full Moon: National Tequila Day

Yesterday was the Full Moon (7/22), and tomorrow is National Tequila Day (7/24). Since these two dates are so close together this year, it must be in the stars...or over the moon, so  I decided to post a recipe for a Chocolate Full Moon. This is a great cocktail! Tequila and Chocolate (Creme de Cacao, both dark and clear) go so well in this simple drink. Don't let it fool you, though. You'll be howling at the moon, if you drink too many. :-)

Chocolate Full Moon

1 oz Cream
1/2 oz Creme de Cacao
2 oz Tequila
1/2 oz Dark Creme de Cacao

Pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker with ice and shake.
Strain into cocktail glass.
Garnish with chocolate curls.

I love this recipe Janet, and being a Moon Girl myself, I may just be making it to celebrate National Tequila Day tomorrow!

Thank you so much for sharing...

How did I miss National Tequila Day? Maybe I'll just extend it so I can make recipe for my vegan Chocolate Tequila Ice Cream. But, your recipe looks killer good Janet so maybe I'll just make a variation so dairy free me can enjoy some!
