Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1 1.5-ounce shot brewed espresso (3 tablespoons), slightly cooled
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large pinch cayenne pepper
  • whipped cream, for topping
  • 1 4-ounce bar bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Chef notes

    I love chocolate milkshakes and this espresso "martino" is the perfect pick-me-up on New Year's Eve so I can stay up for the midnight ball drop. The warm spices bring this mocktail to a whole new level. It's a great way to start the new year on a sweet note.

    Preparation

    Combine the milk, espresso, chocolate syrup, vanilla, cayenne and 1 cup ice in a cocktail shaker and shake well. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with whipped cream

    Use a rasp grater to grate some of the chocolate and cinnamon stick on top. Garnish with the cinnamon stick.
