This riff on a White Russian (vodka, coffee liqueur and cream) is upgraded with dark chocolate vodka, vanilla simple syrup and fresh whipped cream. Ivy Mix prefers Alchemia chocolate vodka. Made with macerated cocoa nibs, the vodka develops a robust, dark chocolate aroma that’s richer than the milk chocolate flavor of other brands.
