Chocolate Martini

Well congratulations, friends, it’s Friday and we’ve made it through yet another busy work week, which means it’s time to celebrate!  But tonight, instead of opening a bottle of wine and polishing off that bag of Chips Ahoy, why not class up your routine a bit and concoct something more interesting – like this super decadent dessert in a glass?!

Chocolate Martini

Makes 1

  • 1½ oz. chocolate liquor (such as Godiva)
  • 1½ oz. vanilla vodka
  • 3-4 ice cubes
  • chocolate syrup for rim of glass

INSTRUCTIONS:

Pour chocolate syrup in to a small, shallow plate. Turn martini glass upside-down and dip rim into chocolate, covering all edges.image

Lift glass from chocolate and allow excess syrup to drip off.image

Set glass aside.

Add liquors and ice to a cocktail shaker, and (nothing against James Bond here) stir with a long spoon rather than shaking to combine.

Carefully pour into martini glass. If you’re feeling extra indulgent, serve with a couple cookies. Repeat as necessary until your sweet tooth is satiated or the memory of your stressful week begins to become cloudy, whichever comes first.image
