Chocolate Cocktail

This drink isn't made with chocolate liqueur. The only chocolate in it is grated on top. It is a sweet combination of silky egg yolk, port and yellow Chartreuse. The port is the major spirit here, and gives the frothy drink the flavor of a Port Wine Flip, or some other colonial cocktail. Chartreuse, especially the yellow type adds more sweetness of honey and plenty of herbal complexity without upping the alcohol content too much. Sipping through the foam topped with bittersweet chocolate is a decadent experience.
  • 3 oz. ruby port (Sandeman used)
  • 1 oz. Yellow Chartreuse used
  • 1 egg yolk
  • grated semi-sweet chocolate (Taza super dark used)
Combine all ingredients except chocolate in a blender with ice. Blend until smooth and pour into a wine goblet. Grate chocolate on top.
