What is Galentine’s Day?  Well, remember Festivus in December? This is sort of the same, being a made up holiday from a sitcom, but its from a different show, Parks and Recreation. Galentine’s Day  happens on February 13th, the day before Valentine’s day (duh), and its a way for gals to get together sans significant others and have brunch. So that means waffles and cocktails. Or something like that. I have to be honest, I have never seen the show. I totally had to google it. I LOVE the idea. I am so down with Galentine’s Day! Because yum for brunch, especially brunches that have chocolate dipped strawberry martinis.

A perfect girly cocktail to celebrate Galentine's Day brunch with all your best girlfriends.
Ingredients
  • 3 ounces Vodka, I used Ciroc
  • 3 ounces Creme De Cacao
  • 3 ounces Dark Chocolate Liqueur (I used Thatcher's Organic)
  • 4 Tbsp strawberry puree
  • 2 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 ounces dark chocolate for decorating glasses
  • Strawberries for garnish
Instructions
  1. Chill glasses in the freezer
  2. Melt the chocolate in a bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave another 30 seconds until melted and let cool 10 min. Add to a piping bag or plastic baggie and cut a tiny part of the tip of one corner if using a baggie and pipe some in the bottom of the glass and decorate around the rim, making sure there is some around the top of the rim. Set in freezer to firm up.
  3. Combine all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into the glasses. Garnish with strawberries and serve
