This rich, decadent, and boozy chocolate martini feels fancy and is easy to make. Make it with creamy chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, and vanilla vodka. Add a splash of cream to make it ultra-luscious. Then, finish it with a fancy chocolate cookie-coated rim for an extra pretty cocktail.
This chocolate martini is one of my favorite cocktails with creamy chocolate liqueur. I like to use equal parts vodka, creamy chocolate liqueur, and creme de cacao for a balanced cocktail. This drink is sweet and decadent while still a bit stout. As a martini should be! Add a splash of cream for a smooth and silky finish. Then, shake everything in a cocktail shaker filled with ice for a perfectly chilled drink. Yummy!
I love serving chocolate martinis in a coupe glass with a chocolate-coated rim. The best way to coat the rim is using crushed Oreos. They look so pretty and fancy and taste amazing. They complement the cocktail better than sprinkles or sugar. Although, you can use those.
Serve chocolate martinis as a grown-up dessert or after-dinner drink. They’re a fun choice for romantic date nights or special occasions. Try making these chocolate liqueur cocktails for Valentine’s Day, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, or Bachelorette Parties!
Ingredients for a Chocolate Martini
- Creamy chocolate liqueur adds a silky, creamy, rich chocolate flavor to this cocktail. Make sure to source a cream-based chocolate liqueur. Baileys Chocolate Liqueur, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, or ChocoLat Deluxe Triple Chocolate Liqueur will all work.
- Creme de Cacao is a clear, sweet, and syrupy chocolate liqueur. It adds another layer of intense chocolate flavor to this martini.
- Vanilla Vodka is aromatic and adds a hint of vanilla flavor. Use a good quality vanilla vodka for the best tasting martini.
- A splash of heavy cream makes this chocolate cocktail extra creamy and decadent.
- You’ll need ice cubes for chilling and shaking the martini. A proper martini is shaken and served very cold.
- If you want to coat the rim of the glass with chocolate, use chocolate liqueur or simple syrup and Oreos. You could use chocolate sprinkles, cocoa powder, or sugar instead of Oreos.
How to Rim a Cocktail Glass with Chocolate Cookies
Remove the creme from 3 Oreos and eat it. 🙂 Then, place the cookies in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin or a heavy glass to crush them to a powder.
Pour the Oreo crumbs into a shallow dish that is big enough to fit the rim of your glass. Then, pour an ounce of chocolate liqueur or simple syrup into another shallow dish.
Carefully dip the rim of your glass into the liqueur. Then, hold it upside down over the dish for a few seconds to let any excess liquid drip off.
Then, dip the rim into the Oreo powder. Gently press it into the crumbs and rotate it around until it is fully coated with cookie crumbs.
How to Make a Chocolate Martini
Fill a cocktail shaker half full of ice. Then, add the vodka, creamy chocolate liqueur, creme de cacao, and heavy cream. Put the lid on the shaker and vigorously shake it to mix and chill the martini.
Strain the chocolate martini into a prepared martini or coupe glass and serve it immediately.
