Some things become a signature item. My husband has a few of those. Whenever it’s pancake time, the wee ones look to him. When adults come over, they’re beginning to look to him for something different.
He’s our martini man. Chocolate martinis, to be specific. They’re pretty much a staple at any party we throw now. Well, except for the Super Bowl, of course. It doesn’t fit so well then.
But yum. Did I mention yum? Nah… a picture’s worth a thousand words:
5 parts half and half
1 part vodka
3 parts crème de cacao
3 parts Godiva liqueur
Hershey’s syrup for garnish
Place the half and half, vodka, crème de cacao, and Godiva in a shaker with ice (or two cups turned with openings facing each other to make a shaker if you don’t have one).
Line your glass with chocolate syrup to make it look pretty, but use less than you think you’ll need. Gravity helps you more than you anticipate here.
Shake the alcohol, and pour immediately into your glass. Serve and enjoy. If there are leftovers, save them. Warning: placing them into a camelback is dangerous. Just sayin’!
