Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini

Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini. That sounds lovely. Since I was little, I have been obsessed with chocolate covered cherries. For some reason, the only times I would eat these sweet treats was at Christmas time and Valentine’s Day. That certainly was not enough for me to get my “fix” of these delectable chocolates.

Chocolate Covered Cherries

My favorite ones are the Cella’s Chocolate Covered Cherries. They come in milk chocolate and dark chocolate variations. Both are equally delicious!

Cella’s own description of the candies describes them as a premium chocolate with a plump cherry that offers a classic “snap” when biting into it. It is is accompanied by a 100% liquid center (the only brand offering such a feature!), making it a truly unique eating experience.

If you didn’t know what those were before, I’m sure you will seek them out now! I am wishing I had those when I made this yummy martini the other night, that’s for sure! Although, it’s probably better that I didn’t have dessert with my dessert martini.

Anyway, my point of adding in the description of Cella’s chocolate covered cherries is that I wanted this Chocolate Covered Cherry Martini to be a similar style. In my opinion, this martini needs to be decadent and rather than having a crisp snap, it needed to have a stunning burst of flavor with each sip. I truly think this recipe has hit the level of excellence that I was reaching for.

Ingredients Needed

As always, dessert martinis are much easier to whip up than any actual dessert. The ingredients are minimal. In this case, you just need cherry vodka and chocolate liqueur. And, basically, you just measure, shake, and pour. Of course, garnishing the glass is always a nice touch!

Here is what you will need to make this chocolate martini:

  • 2 oz Cherry Vodka
  • 2 oz Chocolate Liqueur Godiva is best!
  • Chocolate Syrup for garnish
  • 1 Cherry for garnish

Instructions

Don’t feel like you need to garnish the glass, but I find it fun to dress up a plain martini glass with fun swirls of tasty syrups. Additionally, embellishing the rim of a glass transforms any delicious looking cocktail to an exceptionally, delicious looking cocktail!

So don’t hold back. Garnish the glass and get creative with your efforts.

Here is how to make this tasty drink:

Garnishing The Glass

  • Tilt the glass on it’s side at a 90 degree angle.
  • Drizzle the chocolate sauce on the inside of the glass, approx 1/2″ from the top as you turn the glass so that the sauce covers the entire glass.

Making The Martini

  • Fill cocktail shaker approximately halfway with ice.
  • Measure and pour the ingredients into the shaker.
  • Shake vigorously.
  • Pour into garnished glass.

Once that chocolate covered cherry martini is ready, find a nice and relaxing spot to sit down, savor every sip, and just ENJOY!

Dessert Drinks

If you have a sweet tooth, having a dessert like drink will appeal to you more than you know. The creamy goodness of dessert in cocktail form will be just as addictive as dessert itself. Hopefully, you will be able to control yourself with dessert drinks. After all, they do contain alcohol. Therefore, you need to limit yourself in some way. Even if you are in the comfort of your own home without having to leave, drinking too many chocolate covered cherry martinis will likely have you feeling crappy the next day! So just drink responsibly and enjoy the delightful taste that this martini has.
