Chocolate Mint Infused Vodka Recipe
Rich chocolate and refreshing mint are regularly combined together in everything from cookies to ice cream to candies. Here I infuse fresh mint and cocoa nibs into vodka for a delightful drink. It is great in a martini and adds a lot of nuance to a White Russian.
Chocolate Mint Infused Vodka Ingredients
10 sprigs of mint
1 cup cocoa nibs
1.5 cups vodka
Chocolate Mint Infused Vodka Instructions
Place the mint and cocoa nibs in a whipping siphon and add the vodka. Seal the whipping siphon, charge it, and swirl for 20 to 30 seconds. Let the siphon sit for a minute and a half longer. Place a towel over the top of the siphon and vent it. Open the siphon and wait until the bubbling stops.
Strain the vodka and let sit for at least 5 minutes before using.
