Frozen Cocktails

A frozen chocolate cocktail. 

When I saw it at ValSoCal I knew I would be making this for New Year's Eve. I need more practice with the sugar on the glass but otherwise these were a big hit!  I added a little chocolate syrup to make it more chocolatey, some silver sugar to make it a little more festive and it was a delicious way to celebrate the New Year!




Frozen Hot Cocoa Cocktail
Source: ValSoCal
4 ounces of hot cocoa mix
3 cups of milk
3/4 cup vanilla vodka
4 to 5 cups ice
chocolate syrup, for garnish
mini marshmallows, for garnish
chocolate shavings, for garnish
sugar, for the rim
hot cocoa mix, for the rim

Put some water into a saucer. Dip the rims of the martini glasses into the water and shake off any excess. Dip them in the sugar to rim the glass. You can also rim the glass in hot cocoa instead of the sugar.

In a blender, combine cocoa mix, milk, vodka and 6 cups of ice and blend until smooth. Serve in martini glasses and garnish with the mini marshmallows, chocolate syrup and some chocolate shavings!
