  5. Cocoa Cocktails

    Cocoa Cocktails
    It's hard to resist the sweet taste of a delicious chocolate cocktail. From boozy milkshakes to sweet martinis, many drink recipes feature chocolate liqueur, chocolate vodka, and other cocoa-laden ingredients. They are tempting, perfect for dessert, and a whole lot of fun. 

    Here's one of our recommendations:

    DEATH BY CHOCOLATE MARTINI

    Ingredients:
    Cocoa powder, for rimming
    2 parts chocolate liqueur, plus more for rimming
    1 part vodka
    1 part half-and-half

    Directions:
    Add a few tablespoons chocolate liqueur to a small rimmed plate. Add a few tablespoons cocoa powder to another small plate and whisk briefly to break up the lumps. Dip the rim of a martini glass into the liqueur then into the cocoa. Set aside.

    Add the chocolate liqueur, vodka, and half-and-half to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for a good 20 seconds. Pour into rimmed martini glass.
