Every year I plan a "house cocktail" for the holidays. I make a big pitcher of it in advance and then just shake off the individual cocktails with ice as guests arrive. Since I'm a big believer in making as much ahead as possible so I can enjoy actually spending time with friends and relatives, it makes sense to do the same with the drinks.
I wanted to make it special with a caramel rimmed glass and, since it's needs to set up anyway, it's perfect for making in advance. To be sure the drink wasn't overly sweet, I used unsweetened cocoa powder and added a shot of strong coffee flavored liqueur and some plain white rum. The "house" cocktail is always a big hit with my guests and we've had more than one occasion where we had to quickly whip up another pitcher. I strongly suspect this will be one of those times. Cheers!
