Chocolate Snowball – Cocktail of the Month

I started out this post (and this recipe making) with a tequila based cocktail called the Agave Kiss.  I thought that would be a fitting romantic themed cocktail for the upcoming romantic holiday.  So, it may well have been a nice idea, but it did not hit my pallet in the same manner.


So I scrapped it…and by scrapped, I mean it went down the drain.  And I came up with the next best thing on a snowy Saturday evening – A Chocolate Snowball!
My Chocolate Snowball creation has smooth drinkability with a creamy kick and will help make any winter snowy evening a little cooler…or warmer, depending on how many you have! 

Chocolate Snowball
Experimental Spoon’s Cocktail of the Month



Ingredients:

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Cream de Cocoa (clear color)
  • 1 oz heavy whipping cream
  • 1 Tbls cocoa
  • 2 Tbls sugar


Preparation:

  • Place ice cubes in your martini/cocktail glass to chill.  Combine cocoa and sugar on a plate and mix well.  This will be for lining the glass. 
  • In a tall shaker over ice, combine vodka, cream de cocoa and whipping cream.  Shake for 15 seconds.
  • Remove ice from cocktail glass, wet the rim and twist in the cocoa/sugar mixture until coated.  Strain Chocolate Snowball out of shaker into glass.  Sprinkle a pinch of cocoa/sugar on top.
Happy (& Safe) Cocktailing!!!
