Speaking of chocolate liquor.... Godiva is the best I've had. The others tasted like watered down chocolate with alcohol added. Godiva is really good.

I'll have to try the Godiva. One of my favourite drinks is a Cocoa Cognac, which is first cousin to a brandy Alexander.

Cocoa Cognac:

~6 ounces milk
1 ounce creme de cacao or chocolate liquer
1 ounce Cognac

Pour it all over ice in a shaker. Shake it until it is frothy. Strain it into a tall glass. Yum, but be careful. It's one of those drinks that goes down way too smooth and you can accidentally drink the whole thing in no time flat.
