Velvet Hammer

“Whew, this smells strong.”

“Does it?”

“Yeah. I can smell the velvet. And the hammer.”

The Verdict: Amazing

From The Tasting Notes –

This. Was. Fantastic. Would be a fantastic after-dinner drink. It’s sweet, but not too sweet. Nothing is overpowering, though the Cointreau comes through the strongest. It packs a punch, but a delicious punch. And it almost screams for a brownie to go with it.
