WINE BASED DESSERT COCKTAILS

I created these cocktails in my advanced mixology class here in Chicago at CHIC recently. We were asked to create some wine based cocktails to pair with desserts.

While I don’t usually think cocktails should be paired with entrees or meals in general, they can lend themselves to desserts very well given the plethora of desert wines and liqueurs to work with and the nature of dessert course.

I always stir wine based cocktails to give them a chill, but not over dilute them.

I don’t have names for these…not my forte!
