The Checkerboard cocktail is another variation on that noble tradition: cocktails that taste like chocolate milkshakes. This one uses amaretto for a distinctive touch. All milkshakes should be so blessed.
Enjoy a Checkerboard whenever you want a chocolate milkshake with a kick. This drink is also great for mixing and serving in bulk when you’ve got guests. Or just make a pitcher for yourself – each serving is two ounces of alcohol, so not much stronger than a standard drink.
- 1/2 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce amaretto
- 1/2 ounce brown creme de cacao
- 1/4 ounce chocolate syrup
- 1 scoop vanilla ice cream
- chocolate shavings
Blend everything together in a blender on low speed. Pour it into a glass and sprinkle chocolate shavings on top.
