During my cold brew making phase, I had so much of the stuff that I often found myself experimenting with it.  This cocktail is the result.  This delicious beverage goes down (almost too) easy, and will make you feel like you’re on vacation.  To make sure the drink lives up to its name, be sure to let the chocolate syrup really drip (or slide!) down the sides of the glass!
