Recipe Variations

Want to use something different to coat the rim of your glass? You could try white chocolate ganache instead. 

Don’t like tequila? A light rum, gin, or vodka would work really well and still be a great combination with the strawberry flavors. You can also get flavored gins and vodkas. Strawberry ones, for example, or even a cream vodka would be very nice. 

Want to increase that strawberry flavor? Then you could add a dash of strawberry liqueur or just some strawberry juice to the blender to intensify the flavor.

Make a kid-friendly version. This is a great drink for the kids, minus the alcohol. Just add some extra strawberries to the blender or some strawberry juice instead. 

Swap out the strawberries for raspberries. You could use fresh raspberries in this recipe as well as a raspberry liqueur. 

Add a squirt of whipped cream on top. This will make this more of a dessert and add extra decadence. You could top the cream with some chocolate shavings. 

Swap out the half & half. You could make this extra creamy or offer a different flavor by using chocolate milk with chocolate syrup or even chocolate almond milk. Get creative. 

Make this dairy-free. Use your preferred dairy-free milk and chocolate and you can still enjoy this delicious cocktail.

FAQ

Why is crushed ice missing from this cocktail?

As many of the ingredients will already be ice cold the need for ice is minimal. The blender is also doing the work which would effectively crush the ice further and water down the flavors.

If you want to add ice then add it to the glass before serving. You might need a large glass for that. 

What tequila should you use? 

We have used Tequila rose for this recipe but you can use your preferred brand from your liquor store. It might be the ideal time to try new options and flavors. 

How should I store the Strawberry Truffle Cocktail?

This is a cocktail that is best served straight away. You don’t want to curdle the ingredients.

If you are doubling up your batch then just whizz what is left in the blender for a few seconds before topping up your glass. Make sure it stays cool.
