Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 level tablespoons natural cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • Lemon wedge

Instructions

  • Combine sugar and cocoa powder together in a small bowl.
  • Set aside two tablespoons of the mixture on a plate.
  • In a small saucepan bring the remaining sugar mixture, cinnamon and water to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  • Slice into the lemon wedge; run the cut lemon around the edges of four martini glasses and dredge the wet rims through the sugar and cocoa mixture on the plate to coat.
  • Pour one cup of almond milk into a cocktail shaker, add the cooled syrup and one cup of ice cubes. Shake vigorously until chilled and strain into two glasses. Repeat for remaining two glasses and garnish as desired.
