The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel in Dana Point features the Spiced Chocolate Martini
In the 30-year history of the Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel in Dana Point, the elegant resort has hosted countless celebrations, from fantastic flower-bedecked nuptials to glittering galas and, of course, New Year’s hurrahs aplenty. But why wait for January to toast the coming year? For the remaining days of December, start the countdown to 2016 with the Spiced Chocolate Martini, a jubilant blend of spicy Ancho Reyes liqueur and cinnamon-tinged Fireball whisky. The libation’s chocolaty finish and cinnamon-covered marshmallow garnish recall a chilled Mexican hot chocolate, but this one’s spiked to celebrate the holiday season.
