Chocolate Cocktail Recipes

Guest Author - Katherine Tomlinson

Dorothy Parker once quipped �Candy is dandy but liquor is quicker.� These recipes combine the rich sweetness of chocolate and the warmth of alcohol for a delightful dessert drink on a cool autumn night.

Chocolate Milk For Grown-ups

This drink is so milky and sweet that it�s easy to gulp it down. Don�t do it or you�ll end up flat on your face.

8 ounces cold milk (fat free is fine)
1-2 oz. brown cr�me de cacao
1-2 ice cubes

Stir the liqueur into the milk. The milk will turn a light brown.
Pour over ice. Don�t use crushed ice or the drink will get diluted.

Angel�s Kiss

This is a more intense, concentrated version of Chocolate Milk for Grown-Ups.

1 ounce brown cr�me de cacao
1 ounce heavy cream

Pour the cr�me de cacao into a shooter glass. Gently spoon the heavy cream over the liqueur so it floats on top. Do not mix.

Shoot the kiss.

If you�re looking for a cocktail that�s a little more structured, the following options are both quick to make and very tasty.

The Mudslide

The Mudslide is readily available as a canned cocktail but without the ice cream it just tastes like a couple of shots stirred together. The ice cream mellows the flavor.

� ounce vodka
1 ounce coffee liqueur
1 ounce Irish cream liqueur
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
5 ice cubes

Chocolate syrup for garnish

Blend all ingredients until slushy.
Pour a dollop of chocolate syrup into the serving glass.
Pour the contents of the blender into the glass over the syrup.

Note: 1 ounce of heavy cream (whipping cream) can be substituted for the ice cream. You can also use coffee ice cream instead of the vanilla for a more intense coffee and cream taste. And of course, there�s always the chocolate ice cream option for a mocha mudslide. Or use chocolate liqueur instead of coffee.

The Chocolate Martini

Forget Cosmos�when you can�t decide between chocolate and liquor, this is the solution.

1 � ounces chocolate liqueur
1 � ounces cr�me de cacao (either the brown or clear version will work)
� ounce vodka
2 � ounces half and half

Shake all ingredients in cocktail shaker half-filled with ice cubes.
Pour into a martini glass.

Imbibe.

These drinks are rich indulgences but � know when to say when. They�re meant to be a sweet treat at the end of a meal and enjoyed in moderation.
