OMG, I think I’ve created the best dessert martini ever! Oh heck, who says you have to have it for dessert? Just make it anytime you want, I promise you’ll love this Chocolate Raspberry-tini.
After experimenting with my Creamsicle-tini, I got to thinking about other flavor combinations I love, like chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate/orange, and chocolate/raspberry. I had a bottle of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur as well as a bottle of Chambord so I went to work. My first attempt I added the Godiva, Creme de Cacao, Chambord and half & half. It was delicious but a little bit sweet. So I thought I’d cut it a bit with….drumroll…vodka! No surprise there, eh? But instead of regular vodka I decided to try some whipped vodka and it was perfect!
To garnish this fancy cocktail I used fresh raspberries and even swirled some chocolate syrup in the glass for one of them, very pretty that way! Or you could top the drink with some shaved chocolate. Or, how about trying some chocolate covered raspberries for a garnish? I bet they’d be perfect for this ‘tini. Use your imagination!
I can’t say enough about how much I love this Chocolate Raspberry-tini. I’ll take this over dessert any day of the week! Although I do have to say my cheesecake and Black Russian Cake are pretty darn awesome too!
- 1 oz. whipped flavored vodka
- 1 oz. Godiva chocolate liqueur
- 1 oz. white Creme de Cacao
- 1 oz. Chambord (raspberry liqueur)
- 2 oz. half & half
- Garnish: fresh raspberries or chocolate covered raspberries
- Combine all martini ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain in chilled martini glass. Garnish with raspberries.
- *You can even drizzle chocolate syrup on the inside of the glass if you like...the kind that gets hard, (I think it's called Magic Shell) works really well in a chilled glass, it doesn't drip down the side.
