Samoa (Caramel deLite) Rum Punch

Chocolate, caramel, and coconut are just begging for some rum. Two types of rum, in fact.

  • .5 oz. lite coconut milk
  • .5 oz. chocolate liqueur
  • .5 oz. caramel sauce
  • 4 dashes chocolate bitters
  • caramel sauce to rim glass
  • 1/4 cup toasted coconut flakes
  • 1 Samoa cookie to garnish

Combine rums, coconut water, coconut milk, chocolate liqueur, caramel sauce, and bitters in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled. Prepare glass by coating 1/4 inch of rim with caramel sauce, then roll in coconut flakes to coat. Place one large ice cube in glass, and strain contents of shaker into glass. Garnish with cookie.

Savannah Smiles Gin Flip

With hints of lemon and almond, some frothy egg white, and a whole lot of gin, this sunshiny cocktail is sure to put a smile on your face.

To make one cocktail:

  • .5 oz. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon zest

Shake until chilled. Remove contents from shaker, discard ice, replace contents, and add egg white. Shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds until egg white has foamed. Remove shaker lid and dump contents into glass, including egg foam. Sprinkle foam with lemon zest and cookie dust. Garnish with a bright yellow blossom.

Prepare your glass by drizzling it with chocolate syrup, and putting one large ice cube in it. Combine bourbon, chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, and peanut butter simple syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until chilled, and pour into glass. Garnish with a cookie  that you have carefully cut a small sliver out of.
