Hot Chocolate-Raspberry Russian

Total Time
Prep 1 min
Cook 2 mins

There's nothing like a cup of hot cocoa to warm you on a cold night... Oh, wait, there is: Hot cocoa with vodka! I decided to add raspberry flavored vodka (I used Absolut- it's the only brand I can find in Lisbon with vanilla and raspberry flavors) to my hot chocolate since I've always been a fan of the chocolate-raspberry combo. I suppose one could add vodka and a raspberry liquer, or experiment with other desired flavors.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pint prepared hot cocoa (I had run out of cocoa so I used Cadbury's drinking chocolate plus milk)
  • 2 -3 ounces raspberry vodka (approximately)
  • whipped cream (optional)


  1. Add vodka to hot chocolate/cocoa (if you want more of a kick you could try adding plain vodka, so the raspberry flavor won't overpower the chocolate).
  2. If desired, garnish with whipped cream. Note: I I have tried combining the hot chocolate with vanilla vodka and Kahlúa and obtained equally delicious results!

Fabulous. Chocolate and raspberries are so good. I added 1/2 teaspoon seedless raspberry jam! A good optione for those that want to skip the booze. Thanks.

Oh Yummm. I didn't really measure the amounts but I made a large coffee mug of this delightful concoction. I'll confess to using far less vodka, 1/2 to 3/4 of an ounce. Even that was on the strong side for me but I really wanted the raspberry flavor to come through. Of course it just had to have whipped cream! Made for PAC, Spring 09.
