Friday Cocktail – Nuts and Berries

Yes, I know it’s Saturday, but I wrote this on Friday and forgot to post it.

I have had several Friday Cocktails which have used vodka or other “hard” liquor. Today I decided I wanted something less strong. My Peppermint Froth recipe has been quite popular on Pinterest so I thought I would make another cocktail using Frangelico. I’m sure Juile from A Little Bite of Life will be happy as I know she loves Frangelico.

The nuttiness of the Frangelico mixed with Chambord’s raspberry flavor makes this a perfect after dinner drink.
