Chocolate Orange Martini

February 11th, 2011

This martini is crafted to taste like the popular candy fruit, Terry's Chocolate Orange. It's a fine likeness, me thinks. ;)

One could get away with just Cointreau and Dark Godiva, but I prefer to use those for flavor and less expensive liqueurs for bulk. So in this case orange vodka and Creme de Cocao are used to maintain the same taste without draining the premium bottles as quickly.

  • 2 oz Dark Creme de Cocao
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 2 oz Mandarin Absolut Vodka
  • 1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Kahlua
  • an Orange

Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake all liquid ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats and strain into the glass. Garnish with an orange peel spiral.
