Rim a cocktail glass with *cacao-nib sugar and place in freezer to chill. Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass and stir with ice. Strain into your rimmed glass over one large ice cube.
*Cacao-nib sugar rim:
Combine 2 parts raw cacao-nibs with 1 part Demerara sugar. Use a spice grinder or mortar and pestle to grind them up as fine as possible. Place your glass in the freezer for several minutes. Once you remove it, leave it out a few seconds so that it fogs up slightly. Gently roll the edge of the glass in the mixture and it will stick to the glass.
High-Proof Preacher original recipe
I enjoyed collaborating with Wild Roots Vodka from here in Portland, to develop some fun cocktail recipes. Wild Roots offers 7 different vodkas: 1 flagship vodka and 6 that are infused with real fruit from all over the Pacific Northwest. The real, natural flavors of local fruit make for some delicious and easy drink-making.
