Cocktail Hour Blog hop

Today I'm joining in with Amy of Copper Diems Cocktail Hour Blog Hop, her idea was that she would email us a cocktail and we were to use something about the drink as our inspiration: color, ingredients, era, location, taste, etc.

 My cocktail is....


Mudslide

Mmmmmmmmmm!


Ingrediants
  • 2 shots vodka
  • 1 shot Tia Maria
  • 1 Baileys
  • 1 tbs. chocolate syrup
  • whipped cream
  • cocoa powder

Swirl the chocolate syrup around the inside of your glass. 
Fill a cocktail shaker with crushed ice, add vodka, Tia Maria and Baileys; Shake well. Strain into your glass, top with whipped cream and dust with cocoa powder. 


Mmmmmm that sounds soooo nice and we are certainly having the weather for it at the moment, tho I will have to wait a few more months to try it! Any who, one look at this cocktail and I knew what I was going to use to make my piece....


The browns and cream in this boulder opal stone was just shouting coffee, chocolate and cream at me.

Then I added some brown and cream pearls to some handmade chain. 

This is still very much a work in progress tho, it still needs a really good buff to get rid of the scratches in the bezel (I'm slowly getting more confident at soldering and bezel setting) and I don't feel that the chain sits right with the chunkiness of the opal, I will properly have to make a bigger bolder chain.  


Cheers! (thick chocolate fudge milkshake with lashings of cream mmmmm)

Have a great day
