Chocolate Coffee

Day 250



Chocolate Coffee
3.5 out of 5


Holy Moly the Giants game is on right now and we're recording it and I need to do tonight's cocktail so that I can sit down with my beer and fast food (totally had to so that I can focus on the game) and watch the Giants!!

I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5.  I found this recipe on Pinnacles facebook page and decided to give it a try!  Just like the name it absolutely does taste like Chocolate Coffee, and the whipped cream on top is an absolute must!  The whipped cream adds just a bit more creaminess to this cocktail that I really enjoy.  The only thing I would change about this cocktail would be cutting the vodka back 1/2 ounce.  It would take the bite of the vodka off enough to taste the coffee flavor a bit more.  Otherwise, it's a great combination!

Here is the recipe for a Chocolate Coffee:

  • 2 oz Pinnacle Chocolate Whipped Vodka
  • 1 oz coffee liqueur
  • 1/4 oz half & half (I used half milk and half cream since I didn't have any half & half)
  • whipped cream
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above except for the whipped cream.  Shake it up well and strain your cocktail into a martini glass.  Squirt some whipped cream on top and enjoy!!

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to the SF Giants!  No matter what happens tonight, it's been a great ride!

Cheers!!

    1. Oh I love mochas too! So I haven't tried a total chocolate vodka, the Pinnacle is a whipped chocolate vodka (which I really like). The Pinnacle one has a creamy twist to it, which I really enjoy. I think it's worth a purchase. I still have my mini bottles, but would buy a big one once they're gone.
