"Chocolate HEAVEN! I used to work at a fine dining restaurant. The bartender used to create special drinks just for me since he knew I was a light drinker. He concocted this recipe and I've been hooked ever since! Chocolate Martinis ROCK!" — TMoore

I am typically only a wine drinker, but ever since my first Chocolate Martini some years ago I have made it part of my Friday night tradition! Best made with Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka and Amsterdam Chocolate Liqueur, which is clear. Throw your martini glass in the freezer till good and frosty, squirt a decorative design of Hershey's syrup inside (or chocolate ganache if you're ambitious) and shake that martini mix till it's good and frosty cold. Ahhh, absolute Friday night bliss!
Oh my gosh.. its not often i've had a seriously terrible drink.. but this one is just that in my honest opinion. I'm not a huge fan of martini's anyways, but i figured a chocolate one might be decadent and delicious...all you could taste was strong liquor- almost overpowering. i used vanilla vodka for extra flavoring, choc syrup lined in the glass and a shot of half and half per suggestion of other reviewers, thinking this would calm down the heavy liquor taste. no way. I won't be making, or experimenting with this recipe again.
I LOVE chocolate martinis!! want to make your chocolate martini more sinful? use 3 oz chocolate vodka (I use 3 olive chocolate vodka because its more of a dark chocolate than Van Gogh chocolate vodka, but theyre both good)!
I dipped the rim of my martini glasses in melted chocolate, like you would a margarita glass in salt. I just melted some semi-sweet chocolate in saucer and dipped the rim of the glass then chilled. Looked very elegant and tasted wonderful but keep a napkin handy!
OMG! These were positively heavenly! I wanted to copy MISSMISSYMAK & rim my glasses w/ chocolate but didn't want the mess so I put my martini glasses in the freezer to chill & then rimmed them w/ Magic Shell ice cream topping. Worked like a charm! I topped the martinis w/ a tiny dollop (about 1/2 tsp.) of whipped cream & then garnished w/ chocolate shavings. It was the most beautiful drink I had ever seen...& it tasted just as good!
This was awesome. Used mint and a strawberry as a garnish. Quite excellent.
This is my drink of choice when in downtown Mpls...although I have NEVER had a chocolate martini near as good as the ones served at the Rio hotel in Vegas (made with Godiva chocolate liqueur), this is a VERY close second! MMMMM good - even for people who generally dislike martinis! Thanks, Lauren!
