The Swallow

Why not share a little creamy goodness between friends?

This cocktail combines deep Mocha flavors with a hint of Coconut Cherry Cordial and Vodka for added gravitas –  in Fabulous bird stemware!

You may not think of Cuss Kitchen as true bird lovers- but we ARE!

So much so that we named two of our favorite cocktails after them… The ‘Swallow’ and the ‘Little Pecker’.

Here’s how the dictionary defines swallow

SWALLOW-Noun:  A migratory bird with a broad wingspan, and forked tail.   Highly adapted to aerial feeding

SWALLOW-Verb: To ingest or consume food or drink by causing it to pass down the throat

One warning- No matter how highly adaptive you are- keep your feet firmly on the ground when enjoying these cocktails.

Enjoy the seductive Mocha creaminess, and if you think this innocently-named cocktail has an implied connection to a naughtier definition for the word SWALLOW, you are probably not wrong.

You deserve every minute of this luxurious ‘Swallow’-cation- and if someone interrupts you, Flip ’em the Bird

…a Swallow that is!
