Chilli Chocolate Brew

This punchy recipe was created by our friends at Arbikie. It comes with a kick, courtesy of their smoky, chilli vodka. Tempered a little with the smooth, sweetness of Cold Brew Coffee and additional sugar syrup.

This is the perfect way to warm yourself up on a cool, summer evening.


Fiery chocolatey brew.
