Angel’s Kiss Cocktail

Posted by Jenn. Comment (1).

The Angel’s Kiss. I’ve been wanting to make this cocktail for awhile. But since “kiss” is in the name I thought the drink deserved to be saved for the holiday that’s all about kissing. The fact that it’s made of chocolate, cream and cherries, makes it the perfect dessert cocktail for Valentine’s Day, don’t you think?

Now you may wonder why I have two of them here. Well because depending on how you’re feeling you may want the “nice” version or the “naughty” version. Yes, it’s true. Just like all of us there are two sides to this drink. Sometimes we want to be a little bit nicer and sometimes, especially the later the evening gets, we want to be a little bit more naughty. So for early in the evening why not start with the White Angel which is made with light cremé de cacao and toward the end of the evening when things start to get hot and heavy, end with the angel’s evil twin by drinking the Dark Angel, which, you guessed it, is made with dark cremé de cacao.

Although it’s been difficult for me to find a lot of history on this cocktail, I can tell you it dates back to at least the Prohibition and was one of the more popular after dinner drinks. Since it’s so sweet and made with chocolate liqueur, it would also sometimes act as the dessert itself. And with a float of heavy cream, and a cherry on top are you surprised? Nope, me neither.
