Classic Chocolate Martini

Looking for something special to make your sweetheart this Valentine’s Day? I recommend this classic chocolate martini. It’s a favorite of mine because of its simplicity and smoothness. It’s more like a cocktail and less like a dessert.

All you need is vodka, creme de cacao and chocolate syrup, or a chocolate kiss, for garnish. Just don’t offer one to Aunt Abbey. She had a bad run-in with one years ago, but it wasn’t mine. It was one of those yucky creamy kinds. Just ask Rod for details.

Classic Chocolate Martini
3 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Creme de Cacao (white or dark can be used)

Garnish –
Chocolate Syrup or Chocolate Kiss

First, decorate the glass with chocolate syrup. I like to just add chocolate dots along the rim. They drip down the sides of the glass adding a pretty striped effect. In a cocktail shaker, combine 3 oz. vodka and 1 oz of Creme de Cocoa. Shake, pour and enjoy.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
