- 1 ounce chopped bittersweet chocolate
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Hot espresso shot (1 1/2 ounces)
- 2 ounces chilled vodka
- Ice cubes
- Heavy cream
Combine chocolate and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Pour espresso shot over chocolate mixture; stir until smooth. Add vodka and a few ice cubes. Shake vigorously several times, then strain into a chilled martini glass. Spoon over top a few tablespoons of heavy cream that's been whipped just until silky and thick; stir with a toothpick to create streaks. Serve immediately.
