Devil’s Food Chocolate Cake is a most appropriate bakery treat for Halloween party season. It is dark, decadent and devilishly delicious. But in my opinion, the cake is the bones of the treat. So in this case, the cake is the cocktail. The heart of what I like about dessert.

Devil’s Double Chocolate Cake Cocktail uses flavor inspiration from the cake and whips up a little liquid magic. It is sweet and scrumptious like the dark and delicious chocolate cake. But this Devil’s treat takes minimal preparation time and no time wasted waiting on the oven to preheat. Pour, shake and enjoy. That’s no trick. Devil’s Double Chocolate Cake Cocktail is pure treat.

Make this Devil may care cocktail work for you during the entire winter holiday season. Add 1 ounce Heavy Whipping Cream to the recipe above. Shake with ice along with the vodkas, crème de cacao and liqueurs. Strain into a chilled martini glass (crushed cookie rim optional) or strain into rocks glass over ice. Garnish with sprinkle of cacao nibs for a little bitter chocolate bite to the sweetened cocktail.

The creamy white texture and snowball color pair perfectly with wintry holidays. This variation of the Devil’s Double Chocolate Cake Cocktail makes a great holiday party cocktail. It could also be garnished with a mint leave rather than cacao nibs to add a hint of festive green!

I used Three Olives Vodka, Smirnoff Vodka, Bols Liqueur, Frangelico, Kahlua, Oreo Cookie and Hiland Dairy brands while creating this cocktail. Use the brands you have on hand and are the most comfortable using when recreating this recipe at home. The taste results should be close to the same.

Use Avion Espresso Liqueur in the same capacity you would regular coffee liqueur. You will notice a bit of tequila in the finish. But I also think that adds a touch of something flavorful to cocktails if you are willing to experiment a little. Think of using Avion Espresso Liqueur in place of coffee liqueur in your next White Russian. Avion Tequila even suggests mixing 1 part Avion Espresso liqueur with 1 part Irish Whiskey in a rocks glass over fresh ice. Stir and sip. If you like that, think about adding a little half and half with a bit of Irish cream. Shake it up and serve on the rocks or in a cocktail glass for a creamy espresso cocktail with bit of Irish kick.

Peanut Crème Espresso – recipe by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin

1 ounce Avion Espresso Liqueur

3/4 ounce Castries Peanut Rum Crème

1/2 ounce Carolans Irish Cream

1 ounce Half and Half

Williams-Sonoma Milk Chocolate Shaved Chocolate

Place liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake to blend and chill thoroughly. Strain into chilled cocktail glass or coupe. Garnish with shaved chocolate.

Use any chocolate you prefer for garnish. Grated chocolate chips or grated chocolate candy bar would both work rather nicely. I used what I had on hand in the cabinet. You should too! - photo by Mixologist Cheri Loughlin, The Intoxicologist

There is a nice balance of peanut and espresso flavor with barely there hint of tequila in the finish. If you prefer just a hint more peanut flavor, add a tiny amount more peanut rum crème. Use any chocolate you prefer for garnish. Grated chocolate chips or grated chocolate candy bar would both work rather nicely. I used what I had on hand in the cabinet. You should too!
