How to Make the Perfect Chocolate Martini 3 Different Ways!
Garnish Tip: Swirl chocolate syrup around the glass or add chocolate chips to the bottom for an extra element of chocolatey goodness.
Chocolate Martini – Method 1 “The Classic Chocolatini”
Ingredients: Chocolate liqueur and plain vodka
I mixed 1.5 oz. chocolate liqueur with .75 oz. of plain vodka
Shake then pour.
This combination creates a nice, clean taste. The chocolate is not overpowering. If you are not a big chocoholic-this is probably the Chocolatini for you!
Chocolate Martini-Method 2 “Vanilla Chocolatini”
Ingredients: Chocolate liqueur and vanilla vodka
I mixed 1.5 oz. chocolate liqueur with .75 oz. of vanilla vodka
Shake then pour.
This flavor combination with the vanilla creates a nice romantic air.
Did you know that the vanilla bean was once considered to be an aphrodisiac by both the Aztecs and the Europeans?
The vanilla is subtle but definitely noticeable. If you prefer more vanilla flavor, you may want to add a splash of vanilla. But overall, this cocktail is light, aromatic, and romantic.This Vanilla Chocolate Martini #recipe is light, aromatic, and romantic. #chocolatemartiniClick To Tweet
Chocolate Martini-Method 3-“Double Chocolate Chocolatini”
Ingredients: Chocolate liqueur and chocolate vodka
I mixed 1.5 oz. chocolate liqueur with .75 oz. of chocolate vodka
Shake then pour.

The chocolate vodka definitely gives it a nice extra layer of chocolate. It’s light enough that it doesn’t feel overindulgent, but it’s definitely palpable and satisfying to the chocoholic.
