An over-the-top double chocolate martini cocktail with tons of chocolate flavor. It's a perfectly mixed drink imbued with hints of espresso and hazelnut.
Today is Wednesday and no matter how many funny commercials or memes people create, hump day sucks.
It's the middle of the week and you still have two more days until the weekend. That means a lot of people are going to need a drink by the end of the day.
Well, here at Berly's Kitchen, we understand and we're here for you lol! All joking aside, we decided to share Kim's newest cocktail concoction; our double chocolate martini.
As the name implies, it's loaded with chocolate flavor. Kim even added a little espresso and hazelnut to enhance that dark, rich taste.
While the drink isn't exactly a, "health conscious," choice. I feel there times when you need a something special.
A rough Wednesday definitely qualifies as one of those times. Now, how about we get mixing?
Double Chocolate Martini Instructions:
Let's face it, making a cocktail or mixed drink is pretty straightforward. This recipe is no different.
Basically, you need one kitchen tool and the ingredients. As far as the tool is concerned, it's best if you have a shaker.
However, if you don't have one, I've listed an alternative method in the tips. For the purposes of this post, we'll assume you have one and go froward from there.
To begin, brew the espresso and give it time cool. Or pour about half a cup (½) of it into a mug with ice to chill the espresso.
After that, in the shaker, cup combine the chocolate and hazelnut liqueurs with a handful of ice, the heavy cream, and chilled espresso. Seal the shaker and gently tilt it back and forth to mix the cocktail.
Pour the drink into a martini glass and serve. Feel free to drizzle a little chocolate sauce into the glass before adding the cocktail.
But, it's totally optional and has not been added to the ingredients. That's it, your double chocolate martini recipe is done!
Kim and I hope you enjoy this beverage (responsibly) and wish you all the best 🙂
Double Chocolate Martini Recipe Tips:
First and foremost, do not over mix this drink. Heavy cream has a lot of fat and it will adhere to the ice if the cocktail is shaken too briskly.
In other words, your drink will separate and be yucky.
If you don't own a shaker, you can make this drink in a plastic cup and stir it to properly mix everything together. Unlike 007, you can have your martini, "stirred, not shaken."
Finding a double chocolate liqueur might not be possible. So, if needed, use a regular chocolate liqueur.
Both Ghirardelli and Godiva make wonderful substitutions.
