MID WEEK MIXERS by Naomi Blackburn

I wanted to do something special for Valentine’s month, so here’s a very special drink to add to your recipe for  Da Love Tini to make yours a wonderful holiday! I am a lover of chocolate and raspberries together so, when the light bulb went off over my head for the Raspberry Kiss, I got to concocting! Although, I am a huge fan of dark chocolate and raspberries, it doesn’t ‘tini well. The white chocolate liqueur gave the drink a very soft taste…almost coming off as a raspberry shake.

One of the things I love the most about this tini is its’ white chocolate rimmer and swirls of white chocolate inside the glass. It is just plain fun! Sipping on the drink, the recipient is automatically gifted to the taste of white chocolate.

Be careful though…this is one ‘tini with a TON of alcohol in it!  Here we go…020313 011


1.5 oz Vanilla Vodka
1.5 oz  Razzmatazz Liqueur
1.5 oz White Chocolate Liqueur, such as Godiva
1.5 oz  Half -n- Half


1) Melt white chocolate in either microwave or in a double boiler. Rim glass and swirl white chocolate. Place in
freezer to set.

2) In a METAL shaker, add ice and all liquids. Shake for  60 seconds and strain into ‘tini glass. Top with whipped cream and red sprinkles, if desired

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
