I've made this with both White Chocolate and regular Chocolate Liqueur; both are great.You will have extra Raspberry Syrup; great on biscuits, waffle or pancakes, and ice cream.Pro Tip: When I'm shopping for ingredients like the liqueurs mentioned in this recipe; I often buy the smaller size bottles. Not airplane size; a bit larger than that. At my favorite liquor store they are all in their own section so ask customer service if they carry them. There is no need to have a large bottle of a specialty liqueur unless you know you will use it again and again.
