So…I kind of made a cocktail for a BRUNCH party! It was an innocent mistake, honestly. When I signed up to participate in the Virtual Holiday Potluck with some blogger friends, I failed to notice the word “BRUNCH” in the title. I just was thinking holiday… friends… chocolate… cocktails. Fun!
I’m going to just pretend that our holiday brunch was so much fun that everyone stayed until late in the afternoon, and it was THEN that I served the cocktails. Not at normal brunch time. That’s it. That’s what happened.
We have a great lineup of recipes for you to check out (see all the submissions below the recipe. Most of them very holiday BRUNCH appropriate. I hope you’ll visit all the blogs and see what tasty treats they contributed. In the meantime, here is my recipe for what I am calling a Godiva Mudslide Minitini (serve in tiny martini glasses or make a big martini by serving in normal glasses!) Enjoy!

- 1 ounce cold milk
