Chocolate cocktails you have to try!!

It is the Christmas season so fancy drinks are a must.... 
How about these....Two of my favourite things! Alcohol and Chocolate....hehehe 

Chilli-spiced hot chocolate!

Hot chocolate with an injection of alcohol is one of the most delicious things in the world. This is certainly a winter warmer...

You will need:

250ml milk
3cm vanilla pod, seeds scraped out (or a drop of vanilla extract)
2 tsp sugar
2 tsp cocoa
1 tbsp single cream
a shot of rum (spiced is good if you have it but normal is fine as well)
tiny pinch of chilli flakes
2 cloves
½ cinnamon stick (or 1 tsp powder)

Infuse the milk, chilli, cloves, cinnamon and vanilla seeds together in a pan over a low heat. Separately, whisk the sugar, cocoa and a little cold milk together to form a paste, then add to the pan and whisk together.
Add the cream, warm gently and finally add the spiced rum. Strain into cups to serve.

After Eight cocktail!

You will need:

1 shot of peppermint schnapps
3 shots chocolate milk (either follow the instructions on the back of whatever hot choc drink you've got, minus heating it up OR buy some chocolate flavoured milk)
Ice cubes or crushed ice

Fill a tall glass with ice cubes or crushed ice. Pour in the peppermint schnapps and the chocolate milk. Shake or stir well.

White chocolatini!!

You will need:

1 1/2 ounce vanilla vodka
1 ounce white chocolate liqueur
2 ounce cream
White chocolate shavings for garnish

Pour the vodka, liquer and cream into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well. Strain into a well-chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with white chocolate shavings.

Bounty cocktail!

This is a chocolate drink with a tropical twist...

You will need:

1 shot Malibu coconut rum
1 tbs golden syrup/honey
3 shots of chocolate milk

Shake well and pour over ice, top with cherry or chocolate sprinkles. Sit back, close your eyes and you can pretend you’re on a tropical island...


  1. Wow, these are some fantastic drinks, especially since they have chocolate in them! Happy holidays to you and your family :)

  2. After eight cocktail sounds so delicious, I feel inspired :) x

  3. Really wishing I wasn't dairy intolerant right now!! I'd love the first one but without the chilli! And an After Eight cocktail? Marvellous :)
