You Stole My Heart Cocktail
* 1 1/2oz Gin
* 1/2 oz. Amaro Montenegro
*1/2 oz Lemon Juice
*1/2 oz Grenadine
1 egg white
Freshly Ground Cinnmaon
Add the egg white and the lemon juice to your shaker. When making cocktails that contain egg whites it's always good practice to add the egg whites first. That way, if a little yolk falls in, you can start over without wasting the other ingredients.
Add your grenadine, Aperol, Amaro, & Gin
Then Dry Shake (Shake without ice) for 15 secomds. This helps the egg white become super frothty, adding to the creamy texture of the drink. Briefly set aside
Add ice to an old fashioned glass
Once your glass is prepped,fill your shaker with ice and shake vigrously for a full 30 seconds
Double strain over ice into your glass
At this point the cocktail is complete. Simply garnish with freshly grated cinnamon over the cocktail, or to get festive make a heart shaped stencil out of paper to use to grate your cinnamon over

Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
Half and Half
Dip the edge of your glass into chocolate syrup and add some candy pieces to the rim
Place your rimmed glass in the freezer to chill. Once chilled, add your chocolate syrup to the inside of the glass, and immediately return it to the freezer to help your chocolate drizzle firm up
For a 6oz glass, add 1 1/2 oz Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur and 1 1/12 oz of Chocolate Vodka to a shaker with ice. Add 2 1/2 oz of half and half, shake well and pour into your chilled glass.
