Sleepless in Seattle Hot Chocolate and a Knitting Social in Port Orchard

Sleepless in Seattle Hot Chocolate
1 ounce Maraschino cherry juice
1 ounce Chocolate syrup
1 shot (1 ounce) Espresso
6 ounces Light cream or milk
Garnish Whipped cream
1 ounce Coffee flavor liqueur
1 Maraschino cherry with stem, drained
Directions:
Combine cherry juice, chocolate syrup and espresso. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, stir in cream and heat to scalding. Serve in mug topped with dollop of whipped cream liqueur and a Maraschino cherry.Absolutely delicious single serving of a Seattle hot mocha with a whipped cream kick!
If I had thought about this early enough, I would have made a batch to take with me to the entertaining and light-hearted knitting gathering at Debbie Macomber's - A Good Yarn Shop in Port Orchard, WA. Every third Friday of the month, this cute little store filled with talented ladies and to die for yarns and projects of all shapes and sizes holds an open knitting and crocheting social open to all between 4 and 9 p.m. Laughter can be heard from the parking lot and artistic people of all ages share thoughts, pointers, projects, recipes and good humor.
There is a show-n-tell mid way through the evening and plenty of ideas to get anyone wanting to join in on the fun! My two new friends, Sandy (the adorable and brilliant young lady in the above picture closest with the blue sweater) and Joyce (a hilarious fellow foodie) are sweet, funny and down to knitting business. What a wonderful place to meet new friends!

The hot chocolate is a very comfort drink. How nice to have a group of people having same passion, share ideas together, this is a good gathering.
