I Love Chocolate

by Stephanie Zonis

 

Casanova

A Dessert Drink
2 servings

 

I'm not a big consumer of alcohol. Having said that, I must admit that this pretty, quick-and-easy dessert drink can be very tempting. Not for the younger set, of course. You'll need two wine glasses, each of 6 or 7 ounce capacity; note that the finished drinks will fill these glasses less than half full.

This is named after someone I knew briefly when I lived in Massachusetts, whose nickname among his friends was "Casanova Crow". He was quite as much of a charmer as that implies; it seems to me that this drink might have just as much potential in that vein. Make this for yourself and someone special.

 

4 Tbsp. crème de cacao,
   preferably brown (although white is OK)
2 Tbsp. black raspberry liqueur
Optional: 2 chocolate kisses
   (unwrapped; I use Hershey's because that's what I can find)
4 Tbsp. heavy cream


In the bottom of each of two wine glasses of 6 or 7 ounce capacity, combine 2 Tbsp. crème de cacao and 1 Tbsp. black raspberry liqueur; mix gently until of an even color. Place 1 optional chocolate kiss into each glass.

Float 2 Tbsp. heavy cream on top of the liqueur in each glass. The best way I've found to do this is to measure out the cream 1 tablespoon at a time. Then pour it slowly down one side of the glass, starting with the measuring spoon as close to the top of the liqueur mixture as possible (when you're finished pouring, you can wipe the inside of the glass clean with a bit of paper towel, if you wish). I've read that it's possible to pour cream over the back of a spoon to get it to float, but the tops of my wine glasses curve inward and I can't get a spoon near the surface of the liqueur mixture, so I haven't been able to try that.

Serve immediately.

 

Note:
If you have cordial glasses, you can use those to serve this drink, though I don't know if a cordial glass will accommodate a chocolate kiss, and you may not need the full amount of cream on top of the drink.
