9/12/18 O&A NYC HUMP DAY COCKTAIL: Classic Chocolate Martini

The Chocolate Martini is not a true Martini, but its a chocolate lovers boozy dream come true.

INGREDIENTS

For the chocolate ganache:
1 cup heavy cream
5oz semi sweet chocolate (I use 1.5 bars of Lindt), roughly chopped 

For the Chocolate Martinis:
1oz good quality vodka, divided
4oz Baileys irish cream, divided
Grated chocolate to decorate glasses


INSTRUCTIONS

To make the ganache:

  1. Heat the heavy cream, over medium high heat, until it starts to boil.
  2. Pour the heavy cream over the chopped chocolate in a medium sized bowl and stir until the chocolate melts.
  3. Let it cool before making the cocktails
  4. To decorate the glasses, moisten the rim of your glasses with cold water. Turn the glasses upside down and dip them into the grated chocolate, twisting them around so you get more chocolate on the rim. Reserve.

To make the Chocolate Martinis:

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway through with ice.
  2. Add 1 cup of chocolate ganache, 0.5oz of vodka and 2oz of Baileys. Shake it vigorously for 30 seconds.
  3. Pour the Chocolate Martini into one of the decorated glasses.
  4. Repeat those steps to make the 2nd cocktail.
  5. Serve cold.
