While here in NYC we’re staying at an extended stay hotel/apartment type place. One of the amenities I’ve enjoyed is the resident lounge. It’s quite cozy with a really cool fireplace and a really great bartender named Ebony. She makes this fantastic Chocolate Martini for me every time I stop by after dinner before heading up to the room. I will pass up dessert every time for this wonderful nightcap! Lucky for me, Ebony shared her recipe with me and now I’m sharing it with you. Sorry about the picture…it’s what I took on my iPhone in the bar. When I try this at home, I’ll update with a pretty picture!
Now, I know I’ve made a lot of chocolate flavored martinis on this blog, like my favorite Chocolate Raspberry-tini and the very popular Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup martini, but this one is a bit different. It has Baileys Irish Cream and Kahlua in it as well as a citron or orange flavored vodka and some orange bitters. And, of course, a splash of cream and chocolate syrup! It’s quite delicious and I hope you give it a try!
