What’s a party without a cocktail! When I was brainstorming on what to make for a party I knew it needed to be something sweet, it’s what I do best after all. I had chocolate vodka and raspberry syrup on hand. When I thought about cocktails I could make from these ingredients my mind immediately went to a cream based cocktail, it seemed to make the most sense. But the inspiration this chocolate and raspberry vodka tonic came when I was enjoying my regular vodka tonic. A chocolate vodka tonic sounded like a good idea to me, especially combined with raspberry syrup and with the addition of a little fresh lime juice. You have every flavor profile a cocktail needs – sweet, bitter and sour. It’s a simple cocktail to put together, but it will definitely impress your friends.

I’m no mixologist, but I knew if I got the right levels of sweetness from the syrup and vodka, the bitter edge to the tonic would make for a delicious cocktail. No shaker needed. You will want something mix it up, but even a spoon will do. Since this is a stirred drink, the amount of ice you use isn’t too important as it’s not used to dilute the drink – you just need enough to keep it nice and cold.

If you can’t find chocolate vodka, I would recommend trying this with regular vodka, but please use good vodka. Drinks are just like anything else, the better quality your ingredients, the better it will taste!
