There are plenty of chocolate cocktails to enjoy on Valentine’s Day, but here’s a selection of chocolate cocktails, starting with a S’mores Margarita. The recipe was created by Eleven20, a distiller of both tequila and mezcal.

But first: What is a Margarita?

The original Margarita, created in 1948, combined tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice: an orange-flavored tequila cocktail with a salt rim, served with a lime wheel (here’s the Margarita history).

It became so popular that these years later, the Margarita is always in the list of the Top 10 cocktails in the U.S., often at the top of the list.

Mixologists have played fast and loose with drinks they call “Margarita,” and the following recipe is an example. When is a Margarita not a Margarita? Read our rant on the topic here.

Using mezcal instead of tequila provides a bit of smoky “campfire” flavor.

  • 1.5 ounces Eleven20 tequila (or substitute mezcal)
  • .5 ounce cream chocolate liqueur
  • 1 ounce melted chocolate
  • .5 ounce Grand Mariner (or other orange liqueur)
  • .5 ounce sour mix
  • 1 tablespoon Marshmallow Fluff (recipe to make your own)
  • Ice cubes
  • Mini marshmallows and skewers
  • Crushed graham crackers for rim


    1. RIM the glasses. Moisten the rim with a lime wedge, then dip the rim of the glass in the chocolate (about 1/4″) and quickly twist it in a saucer of graham cracker crumbs.
    2. COMBINE in a shaker the ice, tequila, chocolate liqueur, Grand Marnier, Marshmallow Fluff, and sour mix. Stir the liquid with a bar spoon to loosen up Fluff. Add ice and shake vigorously for 15-20 seconds. There will be small specks of Fluff throughout the cocktail.

    3. FILL the rimmed glasses with ice and strain the drink into them.

    4. GARNISH with three skewered mini marshmallows. Toast the marshmallows with a kitchen torch or other flame.
