Summertime is the perfect time to kick back with a relaxing cocktail — one preferably made with everyone’s favorite ingredient: chocolate. But to get that blend of alcohol and cocoa just right, you’ll need proper guidance from someone who lives, breathes and eats chocolate.
So to help cool off these dog days of summer, we’ve enlisted the aid of Zoe’s Chocolate head chocolatier and co-owner, Petros Tsoukatos, to walk us through the steps to making a sinfully delicious, ‘Chocolatini.’
Zoe’s private blend of homemade, European-style drinking chocolate makes for the perfect ‘Momtini.’ Follow this easy recipe, sit back, relax and sip.
1½ cups ice
4 tbsp of Zoe’s Drinking Chocolate
¾ cup milk
1 shot vanilla vodka (per serving)
Sprinkle a generous amount of Zoe’s Hot Drinking Chocolate mix onto a small plate. Wet the rim of a martini glass and dip it into the hot chocolate mix.
Combine the hot drinking chocolate and milk in a small microwavable cup & heat in the microwave until melted. Let cool.
Combine ice, drinking chocolate & milk mixture, & vodka in blender & blend until smooth.
Pour into martini glass and garnish with mini marshmallows.
