Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini. That just sounds like a dream. You know what? It is! On Mother’s Day, I made myself one of these strawberry, chocolate-y martini and it was yummy. However, the next time I mixed one of these up, I had forgotten my original recipe and mixed up another version using vodka, Bailey’s strawberries and cream, and creme de cacao. Consequently, it was even better than the first time! Every time I think of this yummy dessert-like martini, my mouth waters and I immediately want to have one. Although this can be a problem, if I think of this drink in the morning!

My kids are actually envious that I can drink these and they cannot. After all, it is a good looking drink. The garnish on the glass with strawberry and chocolate syrup and the big, fat strawberry on the rim is so appealing. Not to mention, the pink color that this martini has. Since it looks so amazing, who can blame them for wanting one?

Occasionally, I have made them ice cream shakes to make it up to them. It’s almost the same thing; chocolate, strawberries, and the creamy factor. Yum! Unfortunately, now every time I make a delicious martini like this, my kids think that I will be making them an ice cream shake! Therefore, I think I created monsters!

Ingredients Needed

As always, I don’t use a lot of unnecessary ingredients whether I am cooking, baking, or mixing up a cocktail. I only choose to add ingredients that add flavor and try to keep the list to a minimum. You can skip the glass garnish, if you want. However, the drink looks exceptional with the chocolate and strawberry syrup. Not to mention, the juicy strawberry that sits on the side of the martini glass rim. Nonetheless, the drink will taste just as yummy if you skip those things.

Here is what you will need for both the glass garnish and the chocolate covered strawberry martini itself.

Glass Garnish

  • Chocolate Syrup for garnish
  • Strawberry Syrup for garnish

Martini

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1.5 oz Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream
  • 1 oz Creme de Cacao

Strawberries & Cream

If you haven’t heard of tried Bailey’s Strawberries & Cream, it is dreamy. In fact, Bailey’s describes this liqueur as just that:

Just the dreamy flavors of ripe strawberry and vanilla, mingling with gorgeous Baileys Original Irish Cream and other ingredients and flavors. Oh yes! Float away in a strawberry bubble of pure pleasure, we won’t tell anyone. Splash over ice, swirl into desserts and cocktails, or drizzle over ice cream for a delicious grown-up treat. That’s hit the sweet spot.

I don’t think I could describe this delicious refreshment better than that! It is just an amazing flavor to add to anything. If you love strawberries, you will love this liqueur. When I spotted it in Total Wine one day, my mind went crazy trying to think of yummy concoctions that I could create with this! Of course, the first thing I wanted to try was a chocolate covered strawberry martini.

Making Your Drink

Garnishing The Glass

  • Tilt the glass 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.
  • Take the strawberry syrup and repeat the process for covering the inside of the martini glass.

Making The Martini

  • Fill a cocktail shaker approx half way with ice.
  • Measure and pour all ingredients into cocktail shaker.
  • Shake vigorously.
  • Pour into garnished martini glass.

Get yourself a comfy seat and all that is left to do is sip back and ENJOY!

Dessert Martini

Chocolate covered strawberries are typically thought of as a Valentine’s dessert. And, yes, they are a great treat to get (or give) on Valentine’s Day. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t appreciate the sweet goodness of a juicy strawberry surrounded by a crunchy chocolate shell. Mmm, mmm.

However, you don’t have to wait until February 14th to indulge in chocolate covered strawberries. Nor do you have to wait until then to sip on this yummy chocolate covered strawberry martini! This is an easy drink to make that you can enjoy on the weekend, as a dessert, when you have friends over. Or perhaps you can make this cocktail for brunch. The taste is delicious so don’t limit yourself to just once per year!

And if you love this as much as I do, you might want to try some other delicious fruit and chocolate martinis like:

Chocolate Raspberry Martini

Chocolate Banana Creme Martini

Or a different kind of chocolate martini:

Chocolate Shamrock Martini

Chocolate Amaretto Martini

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini

Chocolate Covered Strawberries are even better when you make a Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini! The sweet strawberry taste with the creamy chocolate flavor mix up beautifully in this dessert martini.
