French toast is a decadent experience that deserves time to savor.
A memorable moment where you sigh between each succulent bite, swallow the guilt, and resolve to eat lettuce and water the rest of the day. Especially when it comes to a sinfully chocolate, Kahlua and vodka spiked, expresso cream topped encounter like this!
Vodka left from a liqueur tasting led me to blend some Kahlua. My homemade Kahlua led me to make a White Russian. That succulent, creamy cocktail edged me into the temptation of dreaming up other ways to enjoy the same tantalizing combination of flavors, beyond the glass. A perfectly natural progression.
Having taken recipes in the other direction like Strawberry Shortcake to Strawberry Cocktail and Chocolate Mint Pound Cake to Chocolate Mint cocktail. Each soothing sip generated a sweet, tantalizing idea I was excited to try.
