This creamy and delicious Godiva chocolate martini is made with just a handful of ingredients, and no bartender experience is needed!
This Godiva Chocolate Martini is a creamy and decadent dessert in a glass. It’s very drinkable, but don’t let it fool you. You need only one or two of these – you’ll thank me later. 🙂
I love martinis in general, but especially chocolate or espresso martinis. A couple of years ago, we had a family gathering at my husband’s uncle’s house for a Christmas party, and he made this Godiva chocolate martini. He gave me this recipe, I modified it a little bit, and I’ve been making it ever since.
This Godiva chocolate martini recipe is perfect for fall and winter, but I often make it throughout the year. You can say it’s my favorite drink ever.
If you’re looking for delicious and easy-to-make martini options, try the raspberry chocolate martini or the gin espresso martini. Both cocktails are simple to prepare and offer a delightful blend of flavors that will surely please your taste buds. Give them a try and see for yourself!
- Godiva Chocolate Liqueur: I used Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur. This one will have a creamy and rich flavor.
- DeKuyper Crème: I used DeKuyper Crème de Cacao Dark Liquer. It works great in combination with Godiva liqueur.
- Vodka: I used Tito’s vodka. This is my favorite vodka. Of course, you can substitute it for the vodka of your preference – just a note if using vanilla-flavored vodka, that will add more sweetness to this martini.
- Half-and-Half: Adding half-and-half will make this martini recipe so creamy.
- Ice: I like to use crushed ice. I think it blends a little better with all the ingredients.
