Chocolate and Coffee Martini


Having cocktails on special occasions has been traditional, but most of us refrain from making indulgent cocktails at home thinking it is just too much work. But there are some cocktail recipes which use simple ingredients, are easy to make and yet result into something right out of a lavish restaurant's menu card. We know that chocolates make any moment a special one, and to date it remains to be the favourite choice for special dates and events. So here's a simple recipe for a Chocolate Martini, another way to savour the chocolate and liquer, and make your moments memorable and sweet!

Ingredients
4 fl oz chocolate liqueur (any flavor you like by Godiva)
2 tbsp crème de cacao (optional)
3 fl oz vodka
1 oz semisweet chocolate - grated
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp instant coffee (any flavor)
5-6 ice cubes

Method
Combine chocolate liqueur, coffee powder and vodka in a cocktail mixer full of ice. Chill glasses and then rim them with the cocoa powder (use egg white to make it stick to the glass edges). Shake the mixture vigorously and strain into the martini glasses. Top it with a layer of creme de cacao. Garnish with chocolate shavings. Let this Chocolate and Coffee Martini transform your evening into something romantic and special!

Tip: For the virgin version, replace vodka with skimmed milk and enjoy!
