This is one of those deceptive cocktails that tastes relatively harmless, but in fact packs quite a bite, much like the predatory flesh-eating fish after which it is named. From "The Ultimate Book of Cocktails" by Stuart Walton

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 teaspoons vodka, 1 1/2 measures
  • 1 12 tablespoons brown Creme de Cacao, 1 measure
  • 1 12 tablespoons ice-cold cola, 1 measure


  1. Pour the alcohol into a rocks glass containing plenty of cracked ice and stir vigorously, before adding the cola.

Since everyone was stating in their reviews that the Creme de Cacao was making the drink too sweet, I figured that really wasn't what was making it sweet. So I chose to use diet coke and the drink was just right. It reminds me of a chocolate ice cream soda. Thanks for posting! Made for Summer '09 Photo tag.

I wasn't sure what kind of cola to use, so ended up using coke. I agree the creme de cacao was a little too overpowering in this drink. It was tasty, but not really what I was hoping for. Should I have used a different kind of cola?

This has a great taste but another time I'll use half the amount of creme de cacao cause it was too sweet for me. Thanks Crafty Lady. Made for Bevy tag
