The ingredient list is short which makes it seem like a pretty straight forward recipe, but getting the proportions right took a little perfecting.
A Few Ingredient Notes:
- The secret ingredient is definitely the vanilla vodka. There isn’t a large quantity of it but just enough to make a difference.
Do yourself a favor and grab a bottle the next time you're at the liquor store! You won’t regret it.
- You can use either dark or light Créme de Cacao. The tastes of dark and light créme de cocoa are the same, but the color of your drink with be a little darker if you use the dark-colored liqueur.
Step 1: Add Chocolate liqueur to shaker filled with ice. (We love Godiva!)
Step 2: Add Creme de Cacao.
Step 3: Add vanilla vodka. Step 4: Add Milk.
Step 5: Shake contents for 30 seconds. You want your drink cold!
Step 6: Swirl inside of martini glass with chocolate syrup.
Step 7: Pour contents of shaker into chocolate swirled glass. Cheers!
It's easy to make a bunch at once! After all, who likes to drink alone? These cocktails pretty much have party written all over them. We have several different shakers that we love but this one is large enough to make martinis for 5 people.
The sky is the limit on how to finish these tasty chocolate drinks.
1. Float a few chocolate curls on top,
2. Rim the glass with cocoa sugar
3. Swirl the glass with chocolate
Combine cocoa and coarse sugar on a small plate. Dip rim of glass in a shallow pool of simple syrup. Allow excess to drip off and then dip into cocoa sugar.
