Nutella embodied in a Shot. It’s no secret… I’m a big fan of the Chocolate-Hazelnut flavor combination.

Nutella embodied in a Shot

So far I’ve used this flavor profile to make these cookies… as well as these… I’ve also used it to frost a cake… to add a little “PZAZZ!” To a cheesecake… And let’s not forget one of the best ways to enjoy this flavor combination, in the form of gelato of course! So, this weekend I decided I would use this flavor profile to bring you this week’s cocktail.

Strawberry Lassi

It was driving me crazy. I’m referring to the absolutely ridiculous heat wave that struck New York on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Temperatures rose to well over 100°F, and the humidity in the air only made things feel even worse. I dread when the temperature goes past 85°F, so this was just madness. Friday was by far the worst day of the three; all the weather stations said the temperature reached 111°F, and for once, I believed the weatherman!

Ok, I’m clearly exaggerating, I’m sure there have been worse moments in my life, but for argument’s sake…let’s just say those ten minutes were preetttyy bad. By the time I got home from my internship, I had made up my mind that there was absolutely no way I was going to bake a single thing during the entire weekend. Enter strawberry lassi. Strawberry Lassi Ingredients · 1 pound fresh strawberries, trimmed and halved · ½ cup honey · pinch of salt · 2 cups plain Greek yogurt · 1 cup crushed ice. Italian Hot Chocolate  When I lived in London my friends and I found a little Italian cafe in Soho that served the most amazing hot chocolate.

Italian Hot Chocolate 

It was really rich and thick – almost like a chocolate pudding before it sets up all the way. I think about that hot chocolate all the time, so you can imagine how excited I was when I came across this recipe for “Cioccolata Calda” (Hot Chocolate Italian-Style). It was drizzling and chilly here yesterday – the perfect excuse to make a nice hot drink. I whipped this up last night, and while it wasn’t exactly the same as that super thick drink that I remember, it was still some of the best hot chocolate I’ve had in a long time.

There were some comments on the original recipe that a bit more sugar and some vanilla extract might improve the flavor, so I added both and was happy with the results. Italian Hot Chocolatemakes 2 small servings Mix the cocoa powder and sugar together in a small saucepan. Be Sociable, Share!
