Before-Midnight Cocktail



  • 125g Co-op Irresistible Fairtrade 70% cocoa dark chocolate, broken into chunks
  • Handful mint leaves
  • 1 large handful of ice
  • 300ml Co-op chocolate flavoured milk
  • 150ml Co-op Delaney’s country cream
  • 150ml Co-op Imperial vodka


  1. Melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bowl
  2. Take off the heat and leave to cool
  3. Pour a little of the chocolate onto a saucer
  4. Take six martini glasses (or other serving glasses) and dip the rim of each into the chocolate to coat it, allowing any excess to drip off
  5. Drizzle some of the remaining chocolate inside each glass, and rotate it to create a swirled pattern
  6. Put in the fridge for about 30 mins, until the chocolate is set
  7. Put half the mint in the bottom of a cocktail shaker and gently crush the leaves with a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon
  8. Add a few ice cubes, then half of the chocolate milk, country cream and vodka
  9. Shake vigorously for around 20 seconds, then strain the cocktail into three of the prepared glasses
  10. Repeat with the remaining ingredients to make the final three cocktails
