A Tale Of Cocktails #27

Chocolate Hurricane 


1 oz chocolate liqueur
1 oz Malibu
1 oz orange juice
Dash lemon juice

Taste: 8
Look: 4
Cost: 7
Name: 7
Prep: 8
Alcohol: 4
Overall: 6.5

Preparation:  Place all ingredients in a cockail shaker and shake along with crushed ice.  Strain and serve.

General Comments: This is very tasty.  Somehow it's very reminiscent of a black forest gateaux, the combination of orange and lemon juice apparently fooling the taste-buds into thinking cherries are involved.  The coconut from the Malibu should rather break the illusion, but it's buried deep enough into the mix that it doesn't cause problems.  On the other hand, it's a bit boring to look at, and a little pricey.  Tasty and fast to make, though.
