Ring in the weekend with this delicious yet no-too-indulgent cocktail made with Frangelico, raw cacao powder and vodka. Delicious.
This naughty but nice Martini is perfect for chocolate lovers. Frangelico is made from toasted wild hazelnuts found only in the north of Italy, which are combined with cocoa, vanilla berries and a host of other natural extracts to make up this complex flavoured liqueur.
- crushed ice
- 2 tsp raw cacao powder
- 2 tsp agave syrup, or to taste
- 120ml Frangelico (available at obrienswine.ie)
- 200ml vodka
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- raw cacao powder
- a few raw cacao nibs
1 Chill two glasses with crushed ice. Dissolve the cacao powder in about 2 tbsp warm water and mix in the agave syrup. Put into a cocktail shaker, add the Frangelico, vodka and vanilla extract and shake for 20 seconds.
2 Tip the ice out of the glass and pour in the contents of the cocktail shaker. Decorate with a little cacao powder and a few cacao nibs and serve.
