I’ve been tinkering with this recipe for quite awhile. I think I might have finally gotten it right. My previous attempts resulted in something that was too sweet, or just completely unpalatable. My goal was to make something that still retained the characteristics of a martini, and not just be a chocolate shake with vodka. Here’s the final result…
- 1.5 oz vodka
- 1/2 oz Godiva Chocolate liqueur
- 1/2 oz cream liqueur (Bailey’s, or similar. Kahlua would probably work, too.)
- 1 dash creme de menthe
Combine ingredients in a martini shaker over ice and shake. Pour into a standard martini glass and garnish with shaved chocolate.

What? No picture? This I needed to see, so clicked out of my reader hopeful. Shucks. At home today I suppose recovering from Mothers Day. A chocolate martini just might do the trick–either a definite cure or guaranteed one more day off.
Sorry, Cathy. It was late and we were worn out from Furman’s graduation. Otherwise, I may have taken a picture. I promise to take a picture of the next one.
You know, something about the thought of a dark brown martini just leaves me …
We need a repeat on this recipe to see if you can still achieve greatness with chocolate in a martini glasses.
