Just like Kahlo's life, this cocktail has the bite and strength befitting the painter. It's far less chocolatey and far more likely to leave a cinnamon-tinged zing on your tongue, reminiscent of Red Hots candy, which makes for a unique drinking experience. In a glass swirled thrice with Omanhene fair trade chocolate, fresh vanilla bean infused Rain Organics vodka is combined with a house-made simple syrup of cinnamon and cayenne pepper, a dash of Thatcher's organic dark chocolate liqueur and fresh cream. It's all shaken and served.
