We wanted to share the comments and feedback we received about Christina Daub’s On the Chocolate Trail: The Elizabeth Taylor Special.
Alternative Recipe for Liz Taylor Special
A friend in Bethesda just asked about recipe for the Liz Taylor Special. All you do is place your favorite truffles artfully on your plate–and if you want to buy them, instead of make them, I suggest you get the Budapest truffles at Kron in DC and then cover them completely with whipped cream.
You might try sweetening the whipped cream with a splash of Grand Marnier and a sprinkling of sugar. This is an irresistible combination with the dark sumptuous truffles.
Alternative Recipe for a Chocolatini
Rim glass in cocoa powder or if you prefer sweeter, add some icing sugar to the cocoa first.
In a martini shaker, shake together one shot Smirnoff vanilla vodka and a shot of Godiva chocolate liquer over ice. Stir in 2 shots of cream and cocoa powder to taste. Shake quickly and strain into martini glass.
Alternative Recipe for a Chocolatini using vodka and Bailey’s Irish Creme
You can also use plain vodka and add Bailey’s Irish Creme to it and use creme de cacao instead of Godiva.
Garnish with dark chocolate shavings for some added pizazz.
