There's something so delicious about a smooth, tropical drink. That's why we partnered with Lindt LINDOR for this post.

So much more than a sticky-sweet tropical drink, this combination of vodka, chocolate, and almond-flavored syrup shake together into a cocktail that's hard to resist. Giving orange slices a quick brûlée finishes the drink with a caramel edge. Serve on the rocks or straight up for a pretty drink that's also wonderful made as a punch at your next party. You can also make your own chocolate sauce, which really adds to the drink.

    1 orange slice
    1/4 teaspoon superfine sugar

Directions

  1. Add the vodka, almond syrup, juice from the lemon, orange-flavored water, bitters, and chocolate sauce in a shaker filled with ice. Shake, and then strain over a tumbler filled with ice, or serve straight up in a martini glass.
  2. Cut the orange slice in half and place on a piece of aluminum foil. Sprinkle one half with the superfine sugar and brûlée with a hand torch until the sugar has caramelized. Use as garnish for the drink, and serve.
