Yeah, you heard me.
I’m sure it’s not a new thing–although I have to tell you, I’m a master at trying flavored margaritas, and somehow I missed the boat on this one.
And if you knew about it and didn’t tell me–shame on you.
You know chocolate and me arelikethis. And I am pretty much locked at the hip with Mexican related stuff (or um, it’s locked on my hips from the consumption of waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many chips and salsa), so the minute I spotted this recipe I had to make one right away.
You should, too.
It is a great way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, after all!
I’m not going to lie: it is a super-sweet drink and is probably best served as a dessert drink rather than a cocktail. It’s also a super-strong drink (well, it was for me, though I’m actually not a big drinker), so if you don’t like ‘em that way, cut back on the tequila a bit. Even the Tall Boy, not typically a sweet-drink fan, enjoyed this one!
