This week, Britain has been celebrating all things sweet throughout this year’s National Chocolate Week where every self-respecting chocoholic can, and has indulged in every imaginable form of chocolate. Come Friday night why not continue to enjoy chocolate but this time with a real twist, all courtesy of the mixologists at Russian Standard Vodka who have dreamt up this deliciously pleasurable range of chocolate cocktails.
Combining the smooth indulgence of chocolate with a luxurious base of Russian Standard Vodka Original, it’s the perfect way to kick off a week of cocoa based extravagance! You’ll be in chocolate heaven. Check out the recipes below…
50ml Russian Standard Vodka Original
100ml freshly squeezed orange juice
25ml crème de cacao
To serve: Slice of orange, a twist of rind & grated chocolate
Shake the Russian Standard Vodka, crème de cacao and fresh orange in a cocktail mixer then pour over ice into a chilled hi-ball glass, add the freshly squeezed orange juice and garnish with a slice of orange and a twist of rind.
Pour Creme de Cacao and Russian Standard over ice and stir gently. Float fresh cream on top.
Russian Standard Vodka Original owes its name and quality to scientist Dmitri Mendeleev’s classic formula, commissioned by Tsar Alexander III. Its optimum balance and purity make it perfect alone or at the heart of a magnificent cocktail.
Step up the celebrations this National Chocolate Week 11th and 17th of October!
