This is a simple chocolate cocktail that is a chocolate liqueur with a boost of vodka for an extra kick, and then topped with some grated chocolate to finish.
I am typically only a wine drinker, but ever since my first Chocolate Martini some years ago I have made it part of my Friday night tradition! Best made with Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka and Amsterdam Chocolate Liqueur, which is clear. Throw your martini glass in the freezer till good and frosty, squirt a decorative design of Hershey's syrup inside (or chocolate ganache if you're ambitious) and shake that martini mix till it's good and frosty cold. Ahhh, absolute Friday night bliss! - 10 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I LOVE chocolate martinis!! want to make your chocolate martini more sinful? use 3 oz chocolate vodka (I use 3 olive chocolate vodka because its more of a dark chocolate than Van Gogh chocolate vodka, but theyre both good)! - 06 Feb 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I dipped the rim of my martini glasses in melted chocolate, like you would a margarita glass in salt. I just melted some semi-sweet chocolate in saucer and dipped the rim of the glass then chilled. Looked very elegant and tasted wonderful but keep a napkin handy! - 16 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
