  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder unsweetened
  • 3 cups vodka
  • 1 vanilla bean split


  • Mix sugar, water, and cocoa in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, just until sugar and cocoa are completely dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  • Pour into a clean 2-quart glass container. Stir in vodka and vanilla bean. Cover tightly; keep in a cool, dark place for 14 days, shaking container thoroughly every 2 days.
  • Strain liqueur through a moist paper coffee filter into a clean glass container. Straining will take a couple of hours as residue is very thick. Change filter halfway through. If residue remains, strain again immediately.
  • Cover tightly; let liqueur age in cool, dark place at least 1 month.
  • If you don’t really want the alcohol, but want the chocolatey flavor, you can substitute chocolate syrup.
