Chocolate Martini

I have to admit I had trouble finding a beverage recipe this week. I try to have a theme for all my recipes each week, like a particular cuisine or an ingredient. This week just didn’t work out that way, so I used the German Chocolate Brownie Pie I just made as a jumping-off point for this week’s drink recipe. After all, who doesn’t like chocolate? I love the stuff, so I went with this Chocolate Martini recipe. Let’s see how it goes.

This Chocolate Martini recipe is one of our favorite ways to celebrate special occasions. Just measure, shake and pour!

The Ingredients

I had a bottle of Godiva dark chocolate liqueur left over from making Chocolate Tiramisu, and I keep creme de cocoa and chocolate syrup on hand. All I had to shop for to make this chocolate martini recipe was the milk and vanilla vodka. If you need to purchase all of the ingredients, here is an idea of the cost:

  • $29.99 Godiva chocolate liqueur
  • $14.99 Creme de cocoa
  • $13.99 Vanilla vodka
  • $ 1.79 Milk
  • $60.76 Total (plus tax)

Chocolate Martini Ingredients
Chocolate liqueur, creme de cocoa, vanilla vodka, milk, and chocolate syrup

The Process

Making this chocolate martini recipe was ridiculously quick and easy, and I had my garnished cocktail ready in 2 1/2 minutes. It really was just as easy as the author said it would be. I love it when that happens!

The only thing I had a question about was the creme de cocoa. It’s available in dark and white, but the variety wasn’t specified. Fortunately, the author included a short video showing the ingredients she used, and I noticed she used dark creme de cocoa.

I didn’t have a mini squeeze bottle for the chocolate syrup garnish, so I had to improvise to get the thin lines. Instead, I snipped off a tiny corner of a plastic bag, added some chocolate syrup, and used it as a piping bag. I have to say it worked pretty well. The alternative would be to just use the chocolate syrup bottle, but the opening on that is very wide and would have made a thick, drippy line. It’s just a matter of which you prefer.

So how was it?

This tasty chocolate martini recipe is so easy to make and garnish! I had mine done in under 3 minutes, and I'm far from a pro bartender. The author was right about skipping the Irish cream--it really did make a difference in the flavor. Speaking of flavor, this recipe made me think of chocolate milk with a slight kick from the alcohol. Nothing too strong, but enough that I didn't forget I was drinking a cocktail.
