When is the best time to enjoy a Chocolate Martini ?
Chocolate Martinis are the ultimate after-dinner cocktails, as they make a perfect dessert. They can be adapted to anyone’s taste, for example using white chocolate liqueur for a milk chocolate version or horchata instead of chocolate liqueur.
Chocolate Martinis are also Valentine’s Day favorites, alongside Champagne and berry cocktails. The richness and warmth of chocolate also make this drink one of the best Christmas cocktails to enjoy during the festive season.
A cocktail made by Hollywood stars
The Chocolate Martini is a martini in name only, much like the Pornstar Martini and the Espresso Martini, but is nonetheless delicious. It’s said that it was invented by two actors, Rock Hudson and Elizabeth Taylor, who both had a passion for chocolate and Martini. One night while filming Giant in 1955, they decided to add chocolate liqueur and syrup to a Vodka Martini. Hence the Chocolate Martini was born, and it’s been a staple dessert cocktail ever since.
