Chocolate Chipotle Powder, recipe follows

1 1/2 ounces dark chocolate liqueur

1 1/2 ounces chocolate vodka

1 1/2 ounces tequila (preferable 100 percent agave reposado)

1 1/2 coffee flavor liqueur (recommended: Kahlua)

Chocolate Chipotle Powder:

2 tablespoons high quality cocoa powder

1 tablespoon ground chipotle (dried, smoked jalapenos)

1 tablespoon ground pepitas (toasted pumpkin seeds)


  1. Spread the Chocolate Chipotle Powder out on a large plate. Rim 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses by rolling the edge of each glass on a clean wet sponge, then rolling the edge over the powder. Tap the glass gently to knock off the extra powder. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain immediately into the glasses and serve.

Chocolate Chipotle Powder:

  1. Fold the ingredients together slowly and carefully so as not to knock the powder into the air as the chipotle powder can burn your nose and eyes.
