A Chocolate Martini is a delicious and decadent cocktail that combines the flavors of chocolate and vodka. Here’s a classic recipe for a Chocolate Martini:

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz (60 ml) chocolate liqueur (such as Crème de Cacao)
  • 1.5 oz (45 ml) vanilla vodka
  • 1 oz (30 ml) heavy cream or half-and-half
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) chocolate syrup (plus extra for garnish)
  • Ice

Instructions:

  1. Chill your martini glass by placing it in the freezer for a few minutes or filling it with ice and water while you prepare the cocktail. This will help keep the martini cold.
  2. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Add the chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, heavy cream, and chocolate syrup to the shaker.
  4. Close the shaker and shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This will help mix and chill the ingredients.
  5. Remove the chilled martini glass from the freezer or drain the ice water, and drizzle some chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass.
  6. Strain the shaken mixture into the prepared martini glass. You can use a fine mesh strainer to remove any ice shards or small ice chips.
  7. Optionally, you can garnish your Chocolate Martini with a chocolate shaving, chocolate sprinkles, or a maraschino cherry.
  8. Serve and enjoy!

Feel free to adjust the ingredients and proportions to suit your taste. If you prefer a sweeter martini, you can add more chocolate syrup or use a sweeter chocolate liqueur. Conversely, if you prefer a stronger drink, you can increase the amount of vodka. Enjoy your indulgent Chocolate Martini responsibly!
