DIY Cocktails: a seasonal chocolate black Russian

From across the pond comes the Black Friday frenzy, with last week marking the official start of the Christmas shopping rush - but if you'd rather avoid the crowds, why not stay at home and make a night of some online bargain hunting?

When you check the last present off your list you can always celebrate with a smooth Chocolate Black Russian.

As anyone who has ever sneaked a day or two ahead on their advent calendar knows, chocolate is the sweet of the season - and this cocktail's kick of coffee will ensure you're perked up and ready to enjoy the night's festivities after the exhausting task of shopping for someone else.

A great way to treat yourself for all your hard work!


5 oz of chocolate ice cream

1 oz of Kahlua coffee liqueur

½ oz of vodka


1 Mix ingredients together in a blender.

2 Pour into a champagne flute and add a short straw before serving.
