The certified Chocoholic that I am, I was telling a friend last night about how much I miss Bengaluru for the double high that the Chocolate martini at 64 Bistro used to give me. I figured that the lounge and pubs(The Oh so few) doesn’t serve this one deadly combo. I tried to convince the bartender at the lounge I frequent to make me one, but he politely refused saying he didn’t know how it was made!
SO, me being me, googled for it high and low. Lo and Behold Chocohol came up! Here’s to all the chocolate loves who would love to have a double high with alcohol and chocolate!
- 1 shot of Chocolate Flavored Vodka (‘Remix’ in India)
- 1 cup Vanilla Ice-Cream
- 1 drop Vanilla Essence
- 1 tsp Caramel Flavored Syrup
- Ice as required
- Chocolate Sauce
- Cocoa Powder
In a blender combine the ice-cream, essence, syrup, ice and a shot of Vodka and give it a good whip till smooth.
Take the cocktail glass, and with your fingers, rub the rim of the glass with chocolate syrup. Dip the rim in cocoa and stand upright. Pour a spoon of chocolate sauce haphazardly onto the insides of the glass.
Proceed by pouring out the vanilla–vodka mix carefully straight in the middle of the glass and serve immediately.
This recipe may not beat the real Bailey’s but it certainly is lighter on the stomach and calories (as no excess sugar or heavy cream is used) and you might just land up having a couple of glasses more.
P.S- Yes I did give this one to the bartender at the lounge
