There’s a restaurant in DC that’s near and dear to my heart because it’s where we went for my bachelorette party AND because they specialize in all things chocolate. They have THE best chocolate inspired cocktails and desserts and call themselves a ‘Chocolate Lounge & Boutique.’ Need I say more? I’m actually surprised it’s taken us this long to make a creamy after dinner cocktail in the spirit of Coco Sala. I had a few requirements for this cocktail which is that it could not just taste like too sweet chocolate milk. I wanted it to have a bite while being creamy and ‘dessert-like’ and this definitely surpassed my expectations! We used a mix of Creme de Cacao, Vanilla Vodka, and Godiva Chocolate for a decadent drink that is perfect for special occasions or anytime you want to turn your home into a Chocolate Lounge.
1 1/2 ounce (Godiva) chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 ounce vanilla vodka
1 1/2 ounce creme de cacao
1 1/2 ounce half-and-half
1. Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker, add ice, and shake.
