Chocolate and Cherries

For me, there are many foods that are synonymous with the holiday season. Whole walnuts is one, Babcią always had bowls full of whole nuts on her coffee table, and the walnuts were my go to. The other is chocolate covered cherries. They happen to be a huge favorite of my daddy’s. So when I saw this recipe for Chocolate Cherry Martini’s I knew I had to serve it this year! It’s so easy, you’re going to want to make these too!

Chocolate Cherry Martini

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1.5 oz ROOT 23 Cherry Almond Syrup
  • 1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur

Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice. Strain in to a martini glass.  Garnish with a cherry or whipped cream.



So most of us have kids that attend our holiday parties. There are also those of us that can’t drink, so mocktails are a must have. ROOT 23’s Simple Syrups can be mixed with many things to create on of a kid “virgin” drinks, in the spirit of the season.

Cherry Chocolate Milk Shake

This is super simple. All you need to do is make chocolate milk shakes. Then add a bit of ROOT 23’s Cherry Almond Syrup. That’s it! You could even add it to coffees that you will be serving!

Their simple syrups go great in not only milk shakes and coffee, but sparkling water, tea, and lemonade. You could even set up a make your own holiday pop table! Grab some sparkling water, and a few different flavors of ROOT 23 syrups, and let the kids, family, and friends, create their own tasty soda waters. Since it’s the holiday season, I suggest their Winter Mix gift pack.
