Today’s guest post is from Josh Kirkpatrick, AKA Formica – you’ve seen him here before, rocking the beef stroganoff. Today he’s back with the perfect end-of-week treat, a chocolate martini recipe that will knock your socks off. And who cares if it’s still early in the day? I mean, come on… it’s five o’clock somewhere.
Is it egotistical to call something perfect? Yes; I’m doing it anyway.
This chocolate martini recipe is the result of years of experimentation, and two moments of satori:
- Take notes on each iteration of the drink
- Chocolate syrup is the key
Properly made, this chocolate martini should have the taste and consistency of melted chocolate ice cream.
The Perfect Chocolate Martini Recipe
To make one Perfect Chocolate Martini, one part should equal two-thirds of a shot, or 30ml. Most shakers should be able to make two of these cocktails at once.
Drinkin’ Math – One Shot Glass Equals:
- Three tablespoons
- 45 milliliters
Chocolate Martini Ingredients:
- 1.5 parts vodka
- 1 part half ‘n half
- 1 part chocolate liqueur
- 1 part chocolate syrup
- 1 chocolate garnish of your choice
- Cocktail shaker
- Cocktail glass
- Fresh ice
- Measuring device (I suggest a shot glass marked in milliliters)
- Place your glass and shaker in the freezer for at least ten minutes for the coldest possible drink.
- Fill your shaker at least one third full with fresh ice. Add the liquid ingredients to the shaker in the order listed above. If you use a measuring cup, add the chocolate syrup last. You can measure it by displacement.
- Shake vigorously.
- Strain into your chilled cocktail glass, garnish with your toothpicked chocolate, and serve immediately.
So, I love me a good chocolate martini. What’s your favorite chocolate cocktail recipe?
