Chocolate Vodka is the perfect gift to make for the friends or, just to enjoy over ice and with splash of cream. The best part is that it only takes a week to make!

I have a weaknes in my heart for homemade Christmas gifts and I thought it was time to finally share some fun Paleo food ideas that you can give this year.

I was kicking around the idea of making Kahlua but then I remembered I had given up coffee. What’s a girl to do? I decided to share how to make chocolate vodka.

How to Make Chocolate Vodka

Ingredients you will need to make this recipe:

  • vodka
  • cacao nibs
  • filtered water
  • Swerve
Ingredient that you need to make chocolate vodka - cacoa nibs and gluten free vodka

This recipe is simple as pie but it does take several days for the flavor to infuse.  I will let mine sit for up to 2 weeks but you can use it after 7 days. 

How to Make Chocolate Vodka Step 1:

  1. Add the vodka and cacao nibs to a mason jar and cover with a lid.
  2. Let sit on the counter for 7 to 10 days.

I am a big fan of White Russian Cocktails. It was  my drink of choice when I hit the young age of 21.

I haven’t had one in ages since I rarely drink but I added a splash of the chocolate vodka to cream over ice and it was heavenly.  It’s definitely an adult version of chocolate milk.
