Ok, OK! <drink of choice> and chocolate!! :)

Lately, at home its been Capt Morgan and Coke with lime.

Omit the coke and you have our second favorite evening cocktail!!

Also, any of the fruit flavored vodkas with the vanilla vodka is great too - 2/3 fruit vodka to 1/3 vanilla vodka. Good stuff.

Have you tried Ciroq, yet. Newer French vodka made from grapes. Very nice - doesn't have that astingent aftertaste that other vodkaas seem to always have.

Oh, Fiona, I'm sure if you were around there wouldn't be any left over wine!

So what's the next ingredient? I will leave this up to the forum. I think this time I want to see what everyone might do with their own favorite ingredient. Or, if you post fast enough, you choose! Time is of the essence.

I will give you five guesses which item I would choose ;) but the first four don't count...

No, we haven't tried Ciroq yet! I did pick up a bottle of Ciclon rum, which is a rum-agave mix by Bacardi. Haven't tried it yet (but it was on sale so I thought, what the hell). I will look for Ciroq on my next shopping trip.
