Chocolate Martini with Raspberry “Olives”

The key word to remember in this decadent drink is martini. Lately, the Chocolate Martini is not only the after-dinner drink of choice, but often the first cocktail of the night. I’m seeing people order these whenever they feel like it. They are that good! It will satisfy your sweet tooth and keep the night going all at the same time.

Chocolate Martini

I couldn’t wait to make these at home. Place your martini glass in the freezer about 15 minutes before serving. This allows the chocolate drizzle to stay perfectly in place. Then chill the vodka, Baileys, and chocolate liquor over ice in a martini shaker, and pour into prepared glass. For the holidays, I like to garnish with fresh raspberries threaded on a cocktail pick. Chocolate and raspberries are a winning combination. This drink also makes an impressive dessert.

This may taste like dessert, but remember to take it slow! It’s not for amateurs!
