This cocktail is not the strongest one in our cocktail repertoire, but will definitely conquer some chocolate cravings while being suitable for a party, get together or just a lazy Saturday! The tart pineapple juice combines with the creamy chocolate to create a delicious cocoa twist on an old classic. If you’re looking for a boozier concoction, simply substitute 1/2 ounce of creme de cacao for 1 full ounce of rum – and don’t be surprised when it knocks you over! Blend it up in your Blendtec or Vitamix blender in under a minute and serve frothy with a wedge of pineapple by the pool. This recipe serves 1, so for a pitcher full, be sure to triple the recipe!
