Luckily I have a fully stocked bar and a large list of drink recipes from which to experiment. I also have a decent selection of wines tucked away but frankly when I have the urge for a fun drink, half the satisfaction comes from the process of actually creating the beverage. Gathering the ingredients, dropping a couple of ice cubes in a shaker, measuring those ingredients and shaking the heck out of them is a bit of therapy even before the liquid cascades into my glass. By far, my favorite mixed beverages are sweet martinis. For these I keep things on hand such as Bailey's Irish Cream, all flavors of Godiva Liqueurs, vanilla vodka, caramel flavored liquors, etc.

It's been a while since I actually ate a Milky Way candy bar, but this little beverage hits very close to what I recall.
1 oz. vanilla vodka
1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream (I used a caramel flavor)
1 oz. Godiva Chocolate liqueur

Strain the liquid into a fun martini glass and serve.
