Emblematic of moving to the beach is this, our first beach created cocktail, Two Turtle Doves. Obviously, the title, inspired by the “12 Days of Christmas” carol. The spirits, first & foremost from the Twelve 33 Distillery just a few miles from my home with their Santa’s Little Helper; some French Vanilla Kahlua & Dorda Salted Caramel on top of Vanilla Vodka round things out after you add some chocolate Bitters.
1 oz Twelve 33 Santa’s Little Helper
1 oz Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka
1 oz Kahlua French Vanilla Coffee Liqueur
1 oz Dorda Salted Caramel Liqueur
3 dashes Fee Brothers Aztec Chocolate Bitters
Garnish: Candy Cane or Dress Pick
Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice.
Shake vigorously until well chilled and strain into a chilled coupe, a chilled martini glass or the perfect dove bird glasses gifted by your niece.
