Ingredients:

  • Crème de cacao or any chocolate liqueur
  • Butterscotch liqueur
  • Vanilla vodka
  • Chocolate syrup (optional)
  • Chocolate shavings

Directions:

  1. Before you mix your chocolate cocktail, first add in a few squiggles of chocolate syrup into the bottom of a cocktail glass and put into the freezer to chill.
  2. Next, combine 2 parts chocolate liqueur, 1 part butterscotch liqueur and 1 part vanilla vodka in a cocktail shaker over ice and mix well. No vanilla vodka on hand? You can mix 1 part regular vodka and add in a dash of vanilla syrup instead.
  3. Finally, remove your glass from the freezer and strain the crème de cacao concoction into the chilled glass and garnish with chocolate shavings for a drink recipe worthy of toasting to National Chocolate Day.

Tip^For a sip that's a little less sweet, substitute 1 part chocolate liqueur with an extra part vanilla vodka. It's just as tasty.
