Chocoalte espresso martini

It’s chocolate over-kill at this time of year, so how about making your indulgence a bit more grown-up?

Easter’s nearly here and along with that lovely bunny comes the chance to rip up the Lent contract of abstinence and embrace choccy again. Along with your favourite brand of chocolate egg why not treat yourself to this stunning little number which is a rather uplifting mix of booze, caffeine and chocolate… pure temptation in glass!

CHOCOLATE ESPRESSO MARTINI

Ingredients:

  • 100g quality dark chocolate
  • 1 tbsp double cream
  • 35ml espresso coffee
  • 50ml vodka (vanilla flavour works especially well)

Method:

Melt the chocolate and then stir in the cream. Mix with the coffee and vodka then pour into a cocktail shaker over cubed ice. Shake, strain into a martini glass, and congratulate yourself for surviving Lent. Please enjoy responsibly.
