Chocolate Martini

Filed under: Food/Drink — Savvy Housekeeper at 9:43 am on Thursday, February 11, 2010

This Valentine’s Day, I’m thinking of foregoing the usual red wine and champagne and go for the chocolate martini instead.

Ah the chocolate martini. Is there anything more decadent? Dessert and a drink rolled into one. Which, of course, is completely awesome.

I took a look around the internet for good chocolate martini recipes and found two I’m pretty sure are delicious.

The first one is from Julie Swank’s blog:

Heart of Dark Chocolate Martini

Ingredients (makes 2 cocktails):

    1 c 2% milk
    2 Tbs unsweetened coco powder
    2 Tbs sugar
    2 jiggers (3 oz.) of vodka
    Ice

Directions:

Stir milk, coco and sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat, using a whisk to combine.

Remove from heat, and let cool. You can pour mixture into a heat proof measuring cup and set over an ice bath to quicken cooling.

Pour cooled mixture into a Martini shaker filled with ice. Shake, shake, shake. Strain into two Martini glasses.

And then the other is from GarnishBar’s Flickr Stream:

Mint Bailey’s Chocolate Martini

Ingredients (makes one cocktail):

    1/2 oz vodka
    1 1/2 oz mint Baileys irish cream
    1/2 oz Godiva white chocolate liqueur
    Chocolate syrup
    Ice
    Mint leaf for garnish


Directions:

Chill martini glass by placing ice in empty glass and let stand. Mix mint Baileys irish cream, vodka, and Godiva white chocolate liqueur over ice in a shaker. Shake well or until frost develops on outside of metal shaker.

Remove ice from chilled martini glass. Drizzle chocolate syrup along the inside edges of the chilled martini glass. Strain cocktail from shaker into chilled martini glass and garnish with a mint leaf. Enjoy.

There will be no entry tomorrow–taking the day off–so have a great Valentine’s Day.
