Creme de Cocoa
We tried this with one of the more common powdered cocoa brands and had so-so results, but once we moved up to a much higher level of cocoa, this became an outrageously delicious liqueur. Be sure your cloves are fresh - best to grind them yourself just before use.
Recipe type: Liqueurs
Serves: 1 bottle
  • 1 Cup powdered cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 3 Cups 80 proof vodka
  • 1 Cup water
  • 2 Cups white sugar
  1. Make sure that you use powdered cocoa for this instead of chocolate drink mix.
  2. Pour the cocoa into a mixing bowl, slowly add the water, mixing with a spoon until you have a thick paste.
  3. Stir carefully and make sure you do not have any lumps.
  4. Pour vodka into mixing jar, add the cocoa syrup mixture. Add the powdered cloves and the white sugar.
  5. Shake vigorously until the sugar is dissolved. Cover, let mixture sit for a week. Strain through fine strainer into bottle.
  6. More sugar may be added if you want a heavier liqueur.
  7. Shake until the sugar is dissolved and then let the mixture rest overnight.
  8. It will not be necessary to strain again.
