This is a shot of blood orange limoncello enrobed in chocolate.
Now, if something has "chocolate on top" then...meh. And if it's "covered in chocolate," that's interesting but not thrilling.
But if it's enrobed in chocolate, let's be honest, it's a goner. That word makes you forget the name of the diet you were on.
And don't get me started on the dark chocolate shavings on top. As everyone knows, dark chocolate is much more civilized than milk chocolate. I'd say that it makes my mouth water just looking at it, but it's really more of a slobber.
Why call it the Parting Shot? Because it's a dessert. You don't start the evening off with a drink like this, that would be ridiculous and irresponsible.
