Liqueur - What goes well with Chocolate - Page 2

post #16 of 25
Traditionally in Europe, any orange flavored liqueur like Cointreau or Grand Marnier goes with chocolate.

Heehee, who says wine doesn't work in cakes, the Champagne Cake is a good example, haha! Also I have seen many cakes that use Madeira or similar sweet wines. Haha, but personally I am with you, I would rather drink a nice glass of Merlot than put it in a cake.
Swiss Chocolate Almond is a nice liquer. Hhmn, glad I read the posts because I have never seen Butterscotch Schnapps, now that sounds interesting!
With Kirsch, don't go overboard with amounts, you can get a strange bitter taste if you use too much.
Some folks prefer to use the liquers in a simple syrup that they brush on the cake before icing. The flavour is a bit more subtle.
I am thinking a Banana Liquer would work well too.

Also, Tuaca. It's a caramel liquour.

It's really sweet & yummy. There's a drink called a Butterynipple that's really good & it's made w/ butterscotch schnapps. . .

Here's the recipe for it, I got it off the internet:
Other variations are name variations are the Slippery Nipple and the Bottom Bouncer.

INGREDIENTS:
Butterscotch Schnapps
Bailey's Irish Cream

PREPARATION:
Layer equal parts in order given into a pony or shot glass. You may also chill each layer separately and layer into a chilled cocktail glass.


I just put equal parts over ice & I'm happy.

Enjoy

Hey alengirl...actually a slippery nipple is peppermint schnapps and Baileys Irish Creme.

Really? I just quickly copied that recipe off the net so I could add it. . .
Here in Miami, a butterscotch nip is also called a slippery. . .
maybe it's a regional thing. . .never heard of bailey's w/ peppermint (sounds like a good Holiday after dinner drink)

Thanks for the info Misdawn icon_smile.gif

oh it's wonderful! And if you add Kahlua, it's called a Peppermint Patty. I've been a bartender at nights for ten years now, and I think your right...it's defniitely a regional thing. We have a drink here in East Texas called a Cowboy Killer. It's awesome, but I'm sure ya'll would probably have the same drink but call it by a different name.

Heehee, it has been many years since I hit the bar scene. Back then I would have been embarassed to ask for a drink with a name like, "Between the Sheets". Now I think I would really have a rough time judging from some of the names the drinks have that my daughters talk about. Haha, they should be given two names. One for the young and another for the oldtimers that can still blush, haha!
Haha, we may end up with a Naughty Drink Discussion category!
