Best way to do this drink is if you add half a can of dr pepper cherry chocolate before you add the chambord and the other half at the end. Now I'm probably off in my assessment of the drink but it reminded me of one of those dairy queen slushies. If you add too much of the vanilla vodka then it kind of mixes too much and makes it a little too sweet. The Blavod might be a little hard to find, where I live I found it in a mexican restaurant and while it may taste like if you licked a marathon runner after the boston marathon when its 90 degrees, the effect it makes to the drink and its real easy to layer. Had it in a drink called Bruised Smurf and it floated on the top over the blue curacao and grenadine, so you had a blue, red and black drink. Be aware of your surroundings when you order this drink, the name could warrant a smackdown.
