There is nothing that says a special occasion like chocolate. And why not step out of the box this year and celebrate with a Chocolate Martini?

Our chocolate martini recipe is so smooth, it almost tastes like chocolate milk with a little kick. This recipe has been in our house for a while, and these chocolate martinis are always a hit whenever they are served.

I’m pretty particular about my martinis, and I’ve seen so many chocolate martini recipes that have Baileys in them. Not this one. I’m a purist, so no Irish Cream in a chocolate martini for me.

It’s a seemingly pretty simple recipe, but getting the proportions right took a little perfecting.

What’s the secret to a great chocolate martini?

The secret ingredient in this drink is definitely the vanilla vodka. There isn’t a large quantity of vanilla vodka but just enough to make a difference – the smoothness that the vanilla flavor adds to the chocolate martini is amazing.

Definitely grab yourself a bottle the next time you’re at the liquor store! You won’t regret it.
