Feel like indulging in both alcohol and chocolate? Want a decedent and delicious drink to celebrate a birthday, promotion or just the end of the week? If so, the chocolate martini is just the drink for you!
Vodka is the key alcohol used to make chocolate martinis. The majority of recipes require for vodka to be blended with anything chocolaty, such as Godiva Liqueur or Creme De Cacao. We have two recipes below for you to try at home:
Chocolate Martini Recipe
1 1/2 shots Chocolate Liqueur
1 1/2 shots Creme De Cacao

The Official Godiva Chocolate Martini recipe from Godiva
1.5 oz. Godiva Chocolate Cream Liqueur
.75 oz. Cîroc Vodka
With both ingredients, shake with ice and strain the contents into a chilled martini glass
For a little extra flair, try some fun and elegant garnishes. Try drizzling chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass before pouring the beverage. Or top your chocolate martini with a chocolate bonbon or chocolate shavings. If you want to add a contrasting flavor and some color, add a few mint leaves or garnish with raspberries.
You truly can't go wrong with either of these recipes or garnishes. After all, you're combining two popular ingredients: vodka and chocolate! Cheers and bon appetite!
