Chocolate Martini's! Make your favourite dinner. Mine would be cajun seasoned salmon with roasted herb potatoes and a crisp green salad. Satiated from a delicious dinner it is time to relax on the deck during a beautiful moonlit evening enjoying a liquid dessert. The Chocolate martini is the perfect after dinner aperitif. Even James Bond would approve of this liquid gem as it definitely must be shaken not stirred. Friends will be wowed with your expertise at the bar when serving this delicious drink after a fabulous dinner. Although the resulting drink looks elegant, it is a drink appropriate for either an ultra formal dinner or a lazy evening barbecue with friends or family. It is also so easy to prepare and can be whipped up in minutes with ingredients you probably already have on hand. The crème de cacao may be the only purchase you need to make and trust me when I say you will always have it on hand once you savour your first Chocolate Martini. In addition, you can garnish this martini in a multitude of ways. The classic Chocolate Martini is served with the basic ingredients, no muss, no fuss. Dipping the rim of the glass in some chocolate syrup ups the fun a notch. Adding a skewer of your favorite fruit will make your martini perfect for lounging on the deck after dinner. Strawberries and bananas go very well with chocolate! For a perfect dessert martini try a garnish of shaved chocolate. The ultimate Chocolate Martini is best served with a dollop of whip cream followed by a dash of chocolate syrup. Read on and discover the simple pleasures of a Chocolate Martini!

The Chocolate Martini is a pleasure visually and a magnificent taste sensation. It is so easy to prepare and yet presents as an elegant aperitif or dessert substitute. Make yourself appear as a diva of delightful beverage creations. The resulting drink looks as though you spent a great deal of time perfecting the recipe but really it is as easy as pie (easier as I never found pie all that easy to make)!

      Make sure you are ordering it as a dessert drink. It is yummy but very sweet! Especially with the whip cream.

      I seldom drink alcohol. So when I do go out I never know what to try or ask for. I will see what turns up if I ask for a chocolate martini next time.

      I am sure you could experiment. Not sure what would replace the vodka? Let's think on it. Glad you enjoyed the process anyway Jaime!

      Rebecca, they are very tasty. I had to make a few to tweak the recipe. My favourite is the version with whip cream.
