A yummy ‘Choctail” or two for mom this Mother’s Day

May 2, 2018, Author: Hello Joburg

We love our Mother’s so much here at Hello Joburg! Think about it – Mothers have super powers, not only do they juggle 20 million tasks, they also manage to run several other people’s lives as well, and keep us sane.

Mom knows when you have been naughty, can read your mind when you are thinking of being naughty, has fixed many scraped knees and elbows, plaited and tied up hair, cooked and cleaned and cheered you on at every sports match or gala that you took part in.

We feel that deserves a reward – or at least a little yummy something to show her that you love her, and appreciate all the hard work that she puts in, every single day! So, we found some yummy cocktail recipes to thank mum, the chocolatey way on Mother’s Day – thank to the team at My Chocolate Box.

Crazy Fun

That mum who will drink shots of tequila with you, and dance around the house singing along to the The Beastie Boys – this is for her!

* 2 tots whiskey

* ½ tot dark crème de cacao

* ½ tot Gancia Rosso Vermouth

* dash of orange bitters

Stir everything together in a tumbler with ice. Garnish with orange peel and let your mom delight in this superb drink.

A Little Feisty

Reminds us of some of our moms. That little extra fire and kick – you know 😉

* 3 tots chocolate liqueur

* 1 tot vodka

* ½ tot milk

* ½ tot cream

* cocoa

* ice

Pour one tot of chocolate liqueur in a plate and the cocoa powder in another. Dip the rim of a martini glass in the liqueur then the cocoa and set aside. Pour all the other ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake for about 20 seconds. Strain into the martini glass and surprise your mom!

Sweet To Her Core

If your mum is literally an angel walking on the earth – then this is the one for her.

* 3 cups ice

* 2 cups milk

* 2 tbsp hot chocolate mix

* ¼ cup salted caramel

* whipped cream

Blend the ice, milk, hot chocolate and caramel together until smooth. Pour into a tall glass, decorate with whipped cream and any nibbles your heart desires and treat your mom.
