360 blog presents a how to guide for making a chocolate martini. If martini’s are a little too bitter for your taste or a little too “plain” this is a much sweeter option (pun intended). The chocolate martini is a great alternative to regular drinks and a great among the sweet ones, it wont be juicy or candy sweet, but actually chocolaty. There are many recipes to make this drink all with small alternatives but basically this is how its done…

Ingredients

– 1 chilled glass (not necessary but highly recommended)
– 1 mixer (you will have to shake this one since there is a difference in density in your mix)
– 2 oz Vodka
– Chocolate syrup (the amount to use is up to you but generally enough to cover the sides of the glass should be enough)
– 1.5 oz chocolate liqueur (in the below video they use Godiva)
– Ice

Make it happen!

You can start by putting some chocolate syrup around your glass on the sides so that the syrup wont just sink to the bottom, it being a higher density than the mix. Next you take your ice and put it in whatever mixer or method of mixing you have. Next you add the 2 oz. of vodka and 1.5 oz. of chocolate liqueur into the mix, shake well and pour it into your already chocolate covered martini glass. Enjoy!

Variations include rimming the glass with cocoa or putting a cherry in the martini and you can always try different liqueurs and change up the flavor, for instance you could make a raspberry martini. The options are endless!

For you visuals out there here’s a video to show how it’s done…

    Funny, I made my own last saturday, this is my variation:
    -1.5 oz Vodka (2 oz for the stronger version)
    -1.5 oz McGuinness Creme de Cacao (1 oz for the stronger version) and a small extra for rimming
    -1 chilled martini glass (mandatory 20 minutes in the freezer)
    -Cacao

    Put a bit of Creme de Cacao in a shallow plate and some cacao in another shallow plate, dip the glass in the alcohol and in the cacao. Put ice, and the alcohol in a shaker and GENTLY shake (this will keep the clear look of a genuine martini). Pour the drink and enjoy!
