The Velvet Hammer is one of the drinks immortalised in Tom Cruise’s bar top poem in Cocktail, and while its not the best known drink in the world, its chocolate orange flavour is easy to sell and delicious!

His Velvet Hammer Cocktail (Blue, my own recipe)

Additional Information:

These drinks look great, have an interesting colour combination and are perfect to serve to couples at the bar on a first date. Both versions of the drink taste almost identical while the colours really let your guests know you care. Pour them simultaneously in a waterfall pour to add a little risk free flair and you’re on the way to a great tip!
