Ingredients

  • 4 ounces of high quality dark chocolate 60% cacao -I used Ghirardelli
  • 2 pints of heavy or light cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 TBS vanilla
  • 1 cup good quality vodka

Instructions

  • Break your chocolate up into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a pot combine chocolate pieces, cream, water and sugar over medium heat stir mixture until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth – like hot chocolate. *Do not bring to a boil*
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  • Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature,
  • Store in fridge in a sealed bottle or jar until chilled.
  • Add in vodka, start with 1/2 cup, shake (or stir) mixture and taste. Add in another 1/4 cup of vodka...shake and taste and finally add in the last 1/4 cup (if you choose...we all like our cocktails at different strengths). You can always add more as well.
  • If it's too thick, you can always add water.
  • Store in fridge until ready to serve.
  • *I like to pop it in the freezer for a 1/2 hour before drinking, mmm!
  • When ready to enjoy,.shave a little chocolate for rimming your glass or topping the martini.
  • Shake mixture very well and pour directly into your glasses...You can use a cocktail shaker with ice as well and strain it out. It's up to you.
  • Mixture keeps for a week in your fridge.
