Recipe: Chocolate Martini

Recipe: Chocolate Martini

The featured cocktail for Episode 44: Nesslerodes, take me home, is the chocolate martini. I said I would never do this drink. Listen to the episode to learn more about why. I include two recipes here. The first is the recipe I made for the recording, which I found way too sweet and pretty heavy, so the next time I made it I altered it a bit to lighten it app but also up the booze, which will also be included below.

Ingredients (original recipe):
1 oz. Vanilla Vodka
1 oz. Creme de Cacao
1 oz. Chocolate Cream Liqueur (like Godiva)
.5 oz. Light Cream
Chocolate syrup and grate chocolate for garnish

Ingredients (Melissa’s variation):
3/4 oz. Vanilla Vodka
3/4 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Crème de Cacao
1 oz. Chocolate Cream Liqueur
Chocolate syrup and grate chocolate for garnish

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and serve straight up in a chilled coupe glass.
Optional: swirl chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass and top with shredded chocolate.
