After date night, my husband and I decided to indulge in a night cap – I thought this cocktail would be perfect – like dessert but without the calories of a slice of chocolate cake.
The description enchanted me, declaring that “this drink, when consumed in one gulp, followed by sucking the lemon slice, produces the flavor of having just taken a bite of warm chocolate cake” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette, October, 2005).
However, I completely missed any chocolate taste! It may have been because I sipped my drink rather than guzzled, or because there is nothing in the recipe that remotely resembles chocolate.
CHOCOLATE CAKE COCKTAIL
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce Frangelico
Rub shot glass rim with lemon. Dip rim in sugar to coat. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in vodka and Frangelico. Strain into shot glass.
