Chocolate Orange Martini and Chocolatini

Pure boozy, chocolaty indulgence; these chocolate martin's should be sipped not gulped, especially seeing as they are both alcohol, alcohol mixed with alcohol!

Chocolate Orange Martini

Yield: 1 cocktail

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Chocolate Rimmed Glass and Chocolate Shavings

Ingredients:

  • 30 ml or 1 oz vodka
  • 15 ml or 0.5 oz white crème de cacao
  • Dash of orange liqueur (such as Cointreau or Grand Marnier)

Chocolatini

Yield: 1 cocktail

Prep Time: 2 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 45 ml or 1.5 oz vanilla vodka
  • 35 ml or 1.25 oz Irish cream
  • 15 ml or 0.5 oz chocolate liqueur

Chocolate Rim

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • A few chunks of choolate
Chocolate Rimmed Glass

Instructions:

  1. Heat the chocolate in a bowl over a simmering heat until the chocolate is melted. It should be just melted and not overly runny.
  2. It is easiest to use the bowl you have just melted the chocolate in to do the dipping if they fit ok.
  3. Dip in your glass, delicately coating the rim evenly with the melted chocolate.
  4. Stand the glass in the fridge for a couple of minutes to harden up.

Drink Instructions

  1. Pour spirits into a shaker with some ice and shake well.
  2. Strain into your prepared glass.
  3. If you like garnish the drink with a few gratings of chocolate. I opted for chocolate orange grating for the Chocolate Orange Martini.

  • London Cocktail Week

    Ketel One Vodka

    London cocktail week was a great opportunity to try out bars and cocktails that you hadn’t yet got around to checking out or test driving and it also provided a perfect excuse (if you needed one) to get out and about a few nights in a row to squeeze in as many £4 discounted drinks as you could in one week!

     
  • Lab Soho

    Lab Stoli

    Lab Soho is a lively, friendly cocktail bar with an edge of sticky about the place like it needs a good clean. You could argue that this adds to the character and appeal depending on what you look for in a bar. The cocktail range is vast and they taste fairly decent too but be prepared to wait if it’s busy and potentially then be faced with a glass full of crushed ice.

     
  • What is Vodka Made From?

    What is Vodka Made From?

    Vodka has been sipped, downed and applied across the globe for centuries. Originating in Eastern Europe towards the end of the 9th century the name is derived from the Russian word ‘voda’ meaning water. It was primarily used for medicinal purposes and as an ingredient in gun powder during the Middle Ages but during the 14th century became an established drink in Russia and by the middle of the 16th century was recognised as the national drink of Poland and Finland. But what is vodka made from?

     
  • How to Make Vodka

    How to Make Vodka

    Vodka is a neutral spirit that tends not to have a distinctive flavour or taste in its untampered form. Vodka is generally not aged and can be made using a range of accessible materials and ingredients such as potatoes, grains, sugars, fruit and most things that are capable of being fermented. This makes it a spirit that is easy to produce in a relatively short space of time.

     
  • Raspberry Vodka

    Raspberry Vodka

    I first discovered raspberry vodka a few years back whilst running a pub. It was Absolut Raspberry and as with everything that is new it had an initial surge of popularity that then curbed and evened out. It wasn’t just a flash in the pan; we kept it in stock and a few regulars that drank it with lemonade (that’s 7-up style lemonade). It was also a handy ingredient to use in shooter and cocktail recipes.
