How to Make PS 7’s Dark & Skinny Cocktail

Mixologist Gina Chersevani’s (seemingly) sinful concoction combines her low-calorie chocolate mix with espresso-flavored vodka. At about 100 calories, this drink’s a win for your taste buds and your waistline.

Dark & Skinny Cocktail
1½ ounces Van Gogh Double Espresso Vodka
1 tablespoon skinny chocolate mix (recipe follows)
3 ounces skim milk (or soy, if preferred)

Add all the ingredients to a shaker filled ¾ of the way with ice. Shake hard until frothy, and then double strain into a cocktail or martini glass. Garnish with shaved bitter cocoa. Enjoy!

Skinny Chocolate Mix
1 cup dark-cocoa powder (not hot chocolate mix)
1 cup Splenda, or other brand of sucralose powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¾ cup boiling water

In a medium bowl, mix together the dry ingredients. Slowly whisk in the water, whisking until it becomes a smooth syrup. Pour into a container and allow to cool in refrigerator before using.
