• 30ml chocolate liquuer
• 30ml Creme de Cacao
• 30ml good quality vodka
• 120ml heavy cream

Add a few tablespoons chocolate liqueur to a small rimmed plate. Add a few tablespoons cocoa powder to another small plate and whisk briefly to break up the lumps. Dip the rim of a martini glass into the liqueur then into the cocoa. Set aside.

Add the chocolate liqueur, Creme de Cacaco, vodka, and cream to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for a about 20 seconds. Pour into rimmed martini glass and serve immediately.
