Drinko de Mayo

Margarita Monday – Chocolate

Posted on Updated on

With Drinko de Mayo coming up, we’re working on margaritas at home. Last week we tried an avocado one. This week we’re going with chocolate.

Below is the recipe I used to make around 3 to 4 drinksChocolate

  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup, plus more for the glasses
  • 1 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup chocolate flavor liquor
  • 1/3 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Splash of lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon of chili powder
  • ice

A fund, Heroes of Beacon Street Fire, has been set up to assist the families of the two heroes who lost their lives. The funds raised here will be to assist the injured who remain in the hospital. Some have a very long recovery ahead. Drinko de Mayo is over a month away but we felt it was very important to contribute. Proceeds from the ticket sales will go to this important and amazing fund raiser. We aim to crush their $5,000 goal.

Alpha In Boston is our alphabet based happy hour / bar crawl. More info here on that.  Next up is Granary Tavern this Wednesday.

The Pirate Crawl takes place on 6/14/13. Tickets for this are also on sale now. We still have a ways to go but have already sold over 50%.
