I’ve been tinkering with this recipe for quite awhile. I think I might have finally gotten it right. My previous attempts resulted in something that was too sweet, or just completely unpalatable. My goal was to make something that still retained the characteristics of a martini, and not just be a chocolate shake with vodka. Here’s the final result…
- 1.5 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate liqueur
- 1/2 oz cream liqueur (Bailey’s, or similar. Kahlua would probably work, too.)
- 1 dash creme de menthe
Combine ingredients in a martini shaker over ice and shake. Pour into a standard martini glass and garnish with shaved chocolate.
