Oh, baby. Now this one looks RIGHT up my alley! Welcome to day three of National Mocktail Week! Today we bring you the Mocha Muddle which looks like a rich and sweet paradise in a glass. Check out the other two cocktails we've showcased this week, Spiced Apple and Ferry Sunrise.


  • 1/2 cup cold brew coffee
  • 1/2 cup vanilla half-and-half
  • 1 cup chocolate milk

Optional Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 3 tablespoons chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut


In a martini shaker filled with ice, combine cold brew with half-and-half and chocolate milk. Shake until smooth and combined. Evenly pour into two rocks glasses filled with ice. Serve and enjoy! Here's an optiion, before you pour drink mixture into glasses, make a simple chocolate syrup: combine coconut oil and chocolate chips in a small glass bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until chocolate is melted and a syrup-like consistency is achieved (this usually takes about two minutes). Using martini glasses, drizzle the chocolate syrup into the glass in a zig-zag like pattern. Evenly pour the drink mixture over the top. Garnish with a pinch of shredded coconut in the center.
