- 2 ounces vodka
- 1 ounce chocolate liqueur
- 1 ounce creme de cacao
- 1/2 ounce heavy cream (optional)
- Chocolate syrup or grated chocolate for garnish
- Martini glass
Step 1: Chill the Martini Glass
Before you start making the drink, make sure to chill your martini glass in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 10 minutes. This will help keep your drink cold and prevent it from getting watered down as you mix it.
Step 2: Combine the Ingredients
In a shaker, combine the vodka, chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, and heavy cream (if using). Fill the shaker with ice and shake until the ingredients are well combined and the shaker is cold to the touch.
Step 3: Strain the Drink
Strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass. The drink should be well combined and smooth, with no lumps or chunks.
Step 4: Garnish the Drink
To finish off your chocolate martini, add a drizzle of chocolate syrup or grated chocolate on the rim of the glass. This will add a fun and festive touch to your drink and make it look even more delicious.
Step 5: Enjoy Your Chocolate Martini!
One of the great things about the chocolate martini is its versatility. You can switch up the ingredients to suit your taste and preferences. For a sweeter and creamier drink, you can add a splash of cream or half-and-half to the mix. For a nutty flavor, you can substitute the chocolate liqueur with a hazelnut liqueur like Frangelico. For a boozy kick, you can add a little extra vodka to the mix.
