The White Blizzard

From Martini Art:


•4 ounces of Absolut Vanil vodka
•1 ounce of clear Creme de Cacao
•2 ounce of Godet White Chocolate liqueur
•1 teaspoon of coconut flakes
•2 freezing martini glasses

The mix:

•Add the vodka to a shaker half full of cracked ice.
•Shake vigorously for a full minute.
•Add the white chocolate liqueur, and Creme de Cacao.
•Swirl the shaker for another full minute, and then let it rest for a minute.
•Strain your martini into the freezing martini glasses.
•Each glass gets half of the coconut flakes.
•Stir each martini gently to start the blizzard!

Me, I skipped the coconut flakes and used vanilla Three Olives instead.

What the fuck is Underberg? I don't even know. It's German and it comes in a tiny bottle wrapped in old-looking brown paper. It tastes like crap, but powerful crap, in a good way, you know, like Jagermeister and Killepitsch.

They've been making the stuff since 1846 using a super secret process involving 43 exotic herbs and aging in barrels of Slovenian Oak. But when you've overindulged and have pushed way too much pasta down your pate, the stuff hits the spot like no Rolaids can. Like the package says, "it cannot be explained - it must be experienced." (It also says Underberg is "not a beverage".)

Did I mention it's 44 percent alcohol?
