Chocolate Margaritas?? What???

Okay, so I know I haven't posted in probably an entire year... but I was on the lookout yesterday for a great (new) margarita recipe, and found it.... along with this:



Here's the recipe, found on the food network site (I can't pin it from there because there's not a proper photo):


To rim the glasses:

  • Chocolate syrup
  • Finely chopped Mexican or bittersweet chocolate*


  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) tequila
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) chocolate liqueur (recommended: Godiva)
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup orange liqueur
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Ice
  • *Can be found in Hispanic or gourmet stores


To rim the glasses: Put the syrup and chopped chocolate into 2 small dishes. Moisten the rims of 4 margarita or martini glasses with the chocolate syrup. Dip them in the Mexican chocolate until coated. Set aside.
Margarita: Combine all of the ingredients, except ice, in a pitcher. Working in batches, transfer the mixture to a shaker full of ice. Shake and pour into the prepared glasses. Serve cold.

I am SO going to make this. In the meantime, here's a generic photo of a chocolate margarita:

Maybe I'll actually do a real blog update sometime soon.
