For those of you who know me you may be wondering as to why it has taken me 9 months to make a chocolate based cocktail. The answer is I’ve know idea so tonight I thought I best rectify this.
50g 70% dark chocolate
50g golden caster sugar
Dusting of cocoa powder
Melt the chocolate and sugar in 75ml of water stirring continuously – allow the mixture to cool. Next pour the vodka and chocolate mixture into a shaker and add ice. Shake. Strain into a glass and dust with cocoa powder.
I can’t decide what I think of this…… perhaps I am too much of a chocolate purist, maybe next time I will take away the water, sugar and vodka! I am thinking that perhaps a warm cocktail with a dark rum and chocolate base could work well, definitely one for winter.
Have a great weekend.
