Candy Cane Chocolate Martini
The Candy Cane Chocolate Martini is loaded with chocolate. It is the perfect cocktail that will go so well with your Christmas meal. This cocktail is so bright and full, with delicious notes of candy cane, vanilla and chocolate. A combination of vodka adds a boozy touch, that just works so well with the other flavors. I love a drink that is easy to make, and this Martini is just perfect. It looks festive, and served in individual glasses with some candy cane on the side. It just screams holiday all over it.
This is not just any martini. This one is the king of all martinis. It’s full of all of my favorite things in the world, in one tiny glass: Chocolate, cocktails, and Christmas. Have you ever tasted peppermint hot chocolate? Well, this is kind of like the adult version, but a little bit colder. This cocktail just wouldn’t live up to its name, Candy Cane Chocolate Martini, without the enticing hint of peppermint in it. For this, I’ve added just a splash of Crème de Menthe. Stay with me on this one, because I know you’re going to love it.
As for the chocolate, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered on three counts. First, there’s light cream with chocolate syrup. It’s our base for this drink. Then, I added a few good ounces of chocolate liqueur. You can use whatever your favorite brand is. Just to top it off and make it good and chocolate-y, I poured in a few ounces of crème de cacao. Then balance it all off with some vanilla vodka.
