One of the best things about this recipe is that you can play around with it until it best suits your personal tastes. There is a wide variety of chocolate martini recipes, each with their own twist on the drink for you to try.
Alcohol Swaps: Some recipes call for the use of Bailey’s and if that’s your prerogative then you can swap out the Creme de Cacao for an equal amount of Bailey’s. You’re also more than welcome to use regular ol’ vodka if that’s all you have lying around in the liquor cabinet; the vanilla brand just gives it that little bit of a twist.
Garnishes: Don’t forget about all the different ways to garnish your chocolate martini! You can line the martini glass with chocolate sauce if you so choose (and why wouldn’t you) for extra chocolate that you indulge in. Plus, it gives the glass an added effect. If you’re looking to add something extra to the drink itself, consider adding some mini marshmallows, chocolate shavings, or dusting some cocoa powder into the drink once it’s all ready.
After a long day at work, the last thing you want to do is think about anything too stressful or have to deal with anything. Rid the complications of the day with this easy chocolate martini recipe that you can garnish however you like. Bring on the chocolate!
