Beverages,

Choco Frost - Chocolate Drink with Chikki Sprinkle

9:03 AM Taste and Flavours 4 Comments

It’s been a while we made some mocktails here. Maybe cos the winters set in. But there are hot beverages as well in my mind and I’m gonna help you treat your family to something special everyday of this week – because this will be a ‘Beverage Week’! Now when we talk about drinks, there are basically 3 things or 3 components to it – Temperature, Base and Flavour.
Temperature – Hot or cold, just cool or like a slush with crushed ice, warm or super steaming hot.
Base – This is the most important component. Base is basically what your drink is made of – water, ice, milk, juice, alcohol, soda water etc. This makes more than 60-70% of your drink.
Flavour – Well, this is the soul of the drink. A Mojito at the right temperature and best quality rum, might not taste so good if ratio of lemon to mint is not right.
Once we’ve got these decided, it’s all about mix n match. There are so many flavours to choose from around us. You can experiment with a few and invent your own drinks!
Today I’ll start with a cool drink with an Indian crunch. I call it –

The Choco Frost
Serves : 4
Ingredients
6 tbsp chocolate syrup (I prefer Hershey’s)
4 cups milk
3 cups Vanilla icecream
4 tbsp crushed mixed dryfruit chikki (Gajjak with jaggery and peanuts or almond crumble can also be used)
Crushed Ice ½ cup

Directions
  • Put some crushed ice in a shaker. Add milk, vanilla icecream and chocolate syrip and shake well for 2 mins.
  • Pour into cocktail glasses.
  • Sprinkle crushed crumble or chikki and serve immediately.
  • I prefer making these even on some cool days because winters in India is the time when chikki / gajjak is most easily available!
