Good martinis come in only one flavor and in one color: gin and

white, respectively. James Bond glamorized the "shaken, not

stirred" vodka martini, but that concoction is as much a real

martini as 007 was a real spy.

So drink these alcoholic Shirley Temples if you must, but at

least avoid painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa by calling them

martinis. (Robert Benchley once observed that the perfect martini

was "three parts gin, and enough vermouth to take away that ghastly

watery look.")

Try this recipe:

2 parts dark crème de cacao

1 part vodka

... and, just to make it interesting, perhaps 1 part

Chambord.

Shake it with ice, strain and serve. (A lump of bubble gum would

be an appropriate garnish, or maybe use a Tootsie Roll as a swizzle

stick.)

This wonderful chocolate martini is well worth the investment in

the fine ingredients. What a wondefully sinful way to excite a

martini glass!

Ingredients

  • 2 ounces of Godiva Dark Chocolate liqueur
  • 2 ounces of Creme de Cacao
  • 1 ounce of half-and-half
  • 2 ounces of freezing Goldenbarr Chocolate vodka
  • 1 tablespoon of shaved white chocolate
  • 2 well chilled, classy looking martini glasses

The mix

  • Combine the Godiva Chocolate liqueur, Creme de Cacao, and

    Goldenbarr Chocolate vodka into a cocktail shaker half full of

    cracked ice.

  • Shake for one full minute.
  • Add the half-and-half to the shaker and gently swirl (circular

    motion).

  • Strain your fine chocolate creation into your martini

    glasses.

  • Top each martini with shaved chocolate.
  • You'll be in chocolate heaven.
  • Although I didn't specify it in the recipe, the presence of a

    beautiful gal with flowing blonde hair on a white stallion will

    only serve to make this martini recipe even better!

It's the only chocolate martini recipe we use in our bar...it's

wonderful!
