This Chocolatini, aka Chocolate Martini, is rich and creamy and the best dessert martini to enjoy as a decadent boozy treat. So, chocolate lovers, get ready; this after-dinner treat is calling your name, and we think you all will love it.
Chocolate liqueur is a combination of cocoa solids and cocoa butter. It’s produced by grounding up cocoa nibs into a paste from the beans of a cocoa tree. Chocolate liqueur is known as unsweetened baking chocolate, which is roughly 50% cocoa solids (cocoa powder) and 50% cocoa butter (the vegetable fat of the cacao bean).
This sweet and creamy cocktail is made up of 4 liqueurs and Hershey’s chocolate syrup. Unfortunately, our Chocolatini recipe doesn’t use Baileys Irish Cream, so let’s dive into what you need to make this delicious drink.
Vanilla Stoli Vodka. We love this flavored vanilla vodka because it’s buttery and creamy. It pairs perfectly with this chocolate.
Frangelico Liqueur. This liqueur has a nice hazelnut flavor that pairs great with chocolate.
Créme De Cacao. We used De Kuyper créme de cacao liqeur as it has a nice dry chocolate flavor.
Chocolate Cream Liqueur. We previously would use Godiva’s Chocolate Liqueur, but we found out it was discontinued. So we experimented around, and we liked Mozart’s Chocolate Cream. It adds such a nice creamy chocolate flavor to this martini.
Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Optional, but we love how it adds a luxurious chocolate flavor. You can add it to the shaker or drizzle chocolate in the martini glass before you add the drink.
This classic chocolate martini is easy to make; you will need a few cocktail accessories, like a jigger and a cocktail shaker.
Add ingredients and ice. Add ice and all ingredients to a cocktail shaker.
Shake and strain. Shake vigorously and strain the drink into a chilled martini glass.
Garnish and serve. Sprinkle some cocoa powder or chocolate shavings on top to make it fancy, and enjoy.
How to batch a martini for a crowd?
Multiply the recipe by the number of drinks you want to make, add to a pitcher with ice, and stir before serving.
How to make this Martini Dairy-Free?
We substitute the Chocolate Cream with dairy-free chocolate milk, but we add more than 2 oz. Check out our Chocolate Almond Martini; it’s a delicious one!
How to serve aChocolatini?
When we previously used Godiva Liqueur, we would swirl Hershey’s chocolate syrup inside the martini glass before we added the cocktail.
Since we can’t find it anywhere, we add syrup to the cocktail and dust the top with some cocoa powder.
Another delicious way to serve Chocolatini is to dip the rim in chocolate syrup before adding the cocktail.
How strong is the Chocolatini?
This martini is stronger than most cocktails because it’s made with 4 different liqueurs. However, because it’s very chocolatey and sweet, it’s hard to say no to just 1 drink.
This Chocolatini cocktail is easy to make, rich and creamy, and is the perfect dessert cocktail for chocolate lovers. We hope you all love our recipe. Enjoy! ♡
