Chocolate Fizz

James Carrier
Yield Makes 2 drinks
This chocolatey drink mimics popular mocha drinks, but without the shot of espresso. Mix the main ingredients, then chill the concoction with ice in cocktail shakers.

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup sweetened cocoa (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1/2 cups cold half-and-half

How to Make It

  1. In a blender, combine 4 ounces dark chocolate, chopped, and 1/4 cup sweetened cocoa (not instant). In a 1- to 2-quart pan over medium-high heat, bring 1/2 cup whole milk to a boil; pour milk over chocolate mixture and whirl until melted and smooth.

  2. Pour in 1 1/2 cups cold half-and-half and whirl to blend.

  3. Place 1 cup ice cubes in a cocktail shaker and add half of the chocolate mixture. Shake until cold and strain into a 16-ounce glass with a few ice cubes in it.

  4. Fill glass with club soda and stir. Garnish with whipped cream and/or shaved chocolate.
