IMG_8114OK, since the Black Tie Dinner is this weekend, I decided to create a nice drink specifically for the event would be made with vodka  (gays love their vodka!) …. with a Black Tie name … and theme … and even appearance. So consider making this at your pre-party (or post — we’re not picky) festivities.

1.5 oz. favorite premium vodka (your choice)

1.5 oz. ginger ale


Chocolate syrup (Bosco, Hershey’s, etc.)

Making it: Combine vodka and ginger ale in a shaker with ice. Shake. In a martini glass, squirt a layer of chocolate syrup around the bottom and edges. Fill glass with contents of shaker, strained; add a few cubes of ice if desired. Add a float of Kahlua.
