I made this cocktail to show off the deliciously rich flavour of my cocoa nib vodka. The combination of double cream and mint syrup really bring out the chocolate flavour and make seriously indulgent drink.

This makes a fantastic after dinner treat and will definitely impress guests!

You could probably use any chocolate liquor instead if cocoa bin vodka, you might need to adjust the amount of syrup through!

Variations: I was thinking of making this a mocha martini by using some Tia Maria and a pain sugar syrup.

Ingredients: Serves one

  • 30ml cocoa nib vodka
  • 25ml double cream
  • 30ml mint syrup
  • 1tbsp cocoa nibs
  • ice
  • mint spring for garnish.

To Make:

Place a few cubes of ice in a cocktail shaker, then add the cream, mint syrup, vodka and cocoa nibs.

Seal and shake hard for 30 seconds to fully incorporate the cream.

Strain into a chilled sherry or martini glass, and garnish with ice and a sprig of mint.
