The September heat wave might have you craving something exotic right now and we don’t blame you. It’s been very hot of late. There are many drinks you can opt for when the mercury soars but we think there’s something especially indulgent about the latest drink we welcome to the famed drinks cabinet of the discerning gent. This week Elysium Magazine introduces the discerning gent to Stoli Chocolat Kokonut vodka.
There are few things that scream tropical more than coconut, and when coupled with the sweetness of chocolate it’s a merry union like no other. Add to this the smoothness of Stolichnaya’s renowned vodka and you have a party in a glass. Fans of classic chocolate bars might be thinking that it sounds a lot like an (alcoholic) version of a Bounty Bar in liquid form, and you’d be right!
Just how do they make this work? Well, the tropical taste of coconut milk is balanced with the luxurious blend of the chocolate to produce this flavoured vodka. The result is a tipple with bold aromas of coconut and cocoa, with a slight hint of vanilla. On the palate it has a creamy texture and a smooth finish. It could just the trump card you need for any end of summer BBQs planned – adding that something extra to summery drinks.
The perfect serve? It’s best enjoyed ice cold neat or in a range of cocktails to provide that tropical twist. Another way to enjoy this is as the wild card in a hot coffee digestif to finish a meal. Whichever way you choose it’s certain to bring the taste of the tropics.
Stoli Chocolat Kokonut is 37.5% ABV and available in 70cl bottles from The Drinks Shop, RRP £20.40
