Cacao Shot


This recipe is great if you enjoy the kick of an espresso. You can play with the cacao to water ratio for the thickness. It's great with a pinch of chili. A nice alternative is with maple syrup and spices which is a culinary treat to serve during a diner with friends.

1. add 10-15 gram (1 tbsp) cacao
If you don't have a scale: 1 tablespoon = ±10gr cacao flakes.

2. add ±60ml hot water
Play with the cacao-water ratio for your favourite thickness. Use water that's just off the boil as the small drink cools of quicker.

3. add a pinch of cayenne.
This gives a nice kick to the cacao shot making it a great energizer.
For making a taste experience for friends cinnamon, cardamom and cayenne are a great combination with maple syrup or other sweetener.

4. blend into a frothy drink!
Using a frother or (hand)blender is an easy way to create a perfect serve with nice bubbles and a delicious aroma. If you're making it for a group it's perfect to mix in a blender and let it run for at least 15 sec to create a thick layer of foam, yummm!

Enjoy the aromas and sip with a smile ☺.
