- 4 ounces of chocolate syrup (See recipe below)
- 6 ounces of Tequila
- 4 ounces of heavy cream
- 2 ½ ounces of Cointreau
- 4 ounces of chocolate liqueur
- 1 tsp of ground Mexican cinnamon
- Shaved chocolate
- 2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup
- Chocolate for garnish
Chocolate Syrup Ingredients.
- 6 ounces of sugar
- 4 ounces of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 4 ounces of water
- Pinch of salt
Syrup Mixing Instructions.
- This item can be made up to a week in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Combine the sugar, cocoa powder, water and salt in a saucepan over a medium high heat.
- Remove any lumps by whisking.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and continue to boil for 4 or 5 minutes or until the syrup thickens. Allow to cool.
Margarita Mixing Instructions
- Lightly dip the rim of your Margarita glass into the chocolate syrup and then into the chocolate shavings. Place the glass or glasses into the freezer so be sure to make room ahead of time.
Tip: Instead of dipping the glass in the syrup mixture grab some hard shell ice cream topping at your grocery store. Place some ice in a bowl and then turn the glass upside down into the ice and let it chill. On a plate or in a bowl make a ring of the hard shell topping about the same size as the rim of the glass. Take the glass out of the ice and dip it in the hard shell, then into the chocolate shavings and if you’re not using it right away put the glass into the fridge.
The hard shell topping is thicker than the syrup so it sticks to the glass better and the fact that you chilled the glass means it will set up and form hard chocolate with the embedded chocolate shavings (no drips). The fridge will keep it solid until you are ready to use it. Prepare as many as you need ahead of time.
- In a pitcher combine the tequila, chocolate syrup, Cointreau, Tequila, heavy cream, chocolate liqueur and Mexican cinnamon. Stir, taste and adjust if necessary prior to serving any guests. Thoroughly chill before serving.
