Cocktails with Larry: Caramel Cadbury Egg martini

by Radio Somewhere

Larry is one of my coworkers. He runs the slitter and the guillotine – and cuts his way through a ton of paper each day. But on Friday, he cuts loose and heads for a bar in downtown Seattle (sometimes a posh bar in a fancy hotel!) where he enjoys a cocktail – a different drink each week.

Before Larry leaves he is supposed to report to either me or the boss and tell his what he’s having. It’s part of our Friday ritual. Cocktail conversation sometimes starts around noon. If Larry is as yet undecided, I make suggestions, doing a Google search if need be. One Friday, while the boss was sporting an impressive black eye which was the outcome of walking into the forklift, I wondered if there was a cocktail with a name to honor that – and we found A Poke In The Eye! The following week, Larry ordered A Kick In The Pants (I won’t say what inspired that!) On Valentine’s Day, he couldn’t decide between Sex On The Beach or a French Kiss.

This week, Larry looked for a cocktail with an Easter theme – and found something that sounds quite amazing if you like those Cadbury chocolate eggs.

This, and other Easter-themed cocktails, can be found at

Caramel Cadbury Egg Martini

1-1/2 oz Baileys Irish Cream with Caramel
1/2 oz creme de cacao
1 oz caramel syrup
1 oz cream
1/2 tbsp Hershey’s chocolate syrup, plus extra for rim

Sounds good, huh?
