Mayan Monkey

For some people, hot chocolate means a small package of powder mixed into boiling water. We aren’t some people, but by the same token, we assume you didn’t come here for a diatribe on how to make hot cocoa from scratch. That said, this drinkable dessert calls for ‘Xocolatl’, an outstanding organic Mexican hot chocolate mix made by Dagoba Organic Chocolate in Ashland, Oregon. The mix is laced with chilies and cinnamon, and packs considerable heat on its own, so you’ll want to adjust the proportion of Hot Monkey to New Deal according to your tolerance.

  • 1 oz New Deal Vodka
  • 1 t Hot Monkey Pepper-Flavored Vodka
  • 3 T Dagoba Xocolatl Hot Chocolate Mix (available at New Seasons Market)
  • 1 Cup Whole milk
  • Vodka Whipped Cream, to taste
  • Orange Zest
  1. Rub orange zest along rim of large ceramic or glass mug.
  2. Prepare Dagoba Xocolatl Hot Chocolate Mix according to instructions and pour into prepared mug.
  3. Add New Deal and Hot Monkey Vodkas in varying proportions according to taste. Stir well.
  4. Finish with a generous dollop of Vodka Whipped Cream, a sprinkling of cinnamon and a twist of orange zest.
  5. You might not leave home this winter.

Vodka Soda with Grapefruit & Lemongrass

  • 2 T LOFT Lemongrass Cello
  • 1 bottle Izze Sparkling Grapefruit Juice
  1. Fill a glass with ice.
  2. Add Hot Monkey Vodka and LOFT Lemongrass Cello. Give it a quick stir.

  4. You could garnish with a stalk of lemongrass, but who has lemongrass just sitting around in their kitchen? We don’t. Do you?
