Melt Your Heart Valentine’s Day Cocktail Recipe


3 oz full fat coconut milk
1.5 oz white chocolate syrup
1.5 oz tequila
1 oz tart cherry juice
Ginger bitters
Mug for glassware
Milk chocolate curls for garnish

For the white chocolate syrup: 

480 grams 35% white chocolate discs (Mon Aimee Chocolat in the Strip District)
270 grams full fat oat milk or coconut milk
35 grams white sugar


  1. Add coconut milk, white chocolate syrup and tart cherry juice to a saucepan and bring up to a low simmer over medium-low heat.
  2. Remove from heat and pour into your favorite mug, then add your tequila and a few dashes of ginger bitters (to taste), then stir to combine.

For the white chocolate syrup: 

  1. Add all ingredients until a medium saucepan and cook over low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved and the chocolate has melted.
  2. Stir constantly to ensure your syrup doesn’t burn and keep a close eye on your temperature.
  3. Transfer to a container while the syrup is still hot, scraping the side of your saucepan with a rubber spatula.
  4. Allow to cool and store refrigerated for up to a month.
