Oz Girl's Favorite Chocolate Martini

I think it's hard to classify this deelish drink... I mean,
does it fall under alcoholic beverages, or desserts?!


In either case, here's the recipe to make
just enough for one person to savor:
One jigger* Godiva dark chocolate liqueur
One jigger vanilla vodka
One jigger half and half

Rim your martini glass with vanilla flavored cocktail sugar.  {I found mine at a Williams & Sonoma store quite a few years ago.  It's pricey, but it lasts a long time!} If you don't have any decadent vanilla sugar, you can use regular ole sugar.  Drizzle some chocolate syrup around the inside of your martini glass.

Mix the above liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice, shaking hard so some of the ice breaks up into lil teeny bits.  Strain the drink into your martini glass, letting some of the teeny ice shreds through to keep your drink chilled. Alternately, you could just drink it fast and not worry about your martini losing its chill.... I mean, dessert is meant to be inhaled, right?

There are several Godiva chocolate liqueurs on the market ~ milk chocolate, white chocolate and a dark chocolate (the original), plus mocha and their newest concoction, a caramel milk chocolate liqueur.  I haven't tried this last one yet, but it sure sounds yummy. Or if you don't want to spend all your hard earned dough on a Godiva liqueur, try using some creme de cacao, either the dark or light. For variety, you could add some Bailey's, or Kahlua for an espresso flavored martini. 

This is the perfect drink if you want to feel like you've just left that big snow pile you call home and pretend you're sitting at the cutest lil island bar somewhere on St. Thomas!  {wink}

  • A jigger is larger than a shot, 1.5 oz to be precise.  What the hay, throw in 2 oz of each ingredient and make yourself a bigger martini.

  4. Mmmmm! Sounds so decadent! I've always wanted to try a chocolate martini. Thanks for the recipe, but can I just come over and drink one with you?

    Don't you think chocolate cherry cheesecake would go well with one, too?

  6. I think it sounds more like dessert. Yummy yum yum. I drank vodka this weekend and I just told my husband that I don't think I should drink vodka anymore because it wiped me out. But....I think I may have to take that statement back. This looks so good.

  19. Anything chocolate sparks my interest but I'd have to format a virgin version(say that five times fast) or I'd be flat on my tush.

    Have yourself a fantastically blessed day!!!
