There are a few spirits that sit back on the liquor cabinet shelf that I haven’t used in a while. On a whim I have begun playing with a few of those forgotten partially used bottles of liquor. The result isn’t always great, but sometime a winner comes through. Chocolate Raspberry Liqueur is one of those winning combinations. It turned out so well I made a special batch for a chocolate and raspberry loving friend for Christmas.

Heat sugar, water, raspberries, juice & peel in saucepan over low heat. Bring to simmer. Remove from heat. Double strain to remove all pulp. Allow to cool. Pour raspberry syrup & 2 cups Chocolate Vodka in bottle with lid. Refrigerate.
