Drink of the Day: Blue Jaffa

January 2, 2015 | By | Add a Comment

Since we are getting done with the last two short work weeks, I wanted to share a nice and easy, yet full-of-flavor, cocktail to you today.  The color is magnificent and I love the name of this one.

All we are doing here is serving up equal parts of three ingredients to give you a nice and chocolatey sweet up beverage.  This is all liquor, so don’t be fulled on how refreshing this drink is.  It will still knock you on your you know what if you are not careful.  Combining vodka with some Creme de Cacao for the chocolate edge, then sweetening it up with the Blue Curacao, this makes a nice dessert beverage you can sip on while waiting for your food to digest.

Have a pleasant Friday, all.  Cheers!5-8 blue jaffa cocktail
