Serve in aCoupe glass
Coat rim of glass with chocolate – use a microwave to melt a few squares of dark chocolate in a saucer and then and dip the rim of the glass into the melted chocolate. Grate chocolate over surface of the drink and add half a Cadbury Creme Egg skewered on a stick. It's easier to cut the chocolate egg when straight from the refrigerator (a good test for how sharp your knife is). Spear the egg with a metal cocktail stick that has been heated under hot water.
How to make:
1. To flavour your vodka with a vanilla pod. Simply cut the vanilla pod lengthways to expose the flavoursome seeds inside and drop the scored vanilla pod into your bottle of vodka. Reseal and shake bottle several times a day for at least two days, preferably a week.
2. SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
