The Chocolate Martini
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…
– 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)
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…
