Chocolate Martinis make the perfect after dinner drink. I discovered this version of a Chocolate Martini while I was in Cleveland, OH on business. I stayed at the Metropolitan on the 9, and they had this cool bar called the Vault. Brooklyn suggested that I try her favorite martini, so I did! Thank you, Brooklyn!

Ingredients that you’ll need to make this martini

You’ll need a Vodka. Brooklyn used Grey Goose, which I love, but if you are looking for a less expensive but all-around good Vodka you can try Absolut, Tito’s and Ketel One. Of course, the best chocolate liqueur is Godiva. And last but not least is the Baileys.

Next the unusual items. You will need a Cocoa Bitters. I found this at my local liquor store. The Vanilla Bean Paste was a little more difficult to find but I was able to find it here. The Ghirardelli Bittersweet Chocolate I found in the baking aisle of my grocery store. If you have a fine grater, you can use it to grate the chocolate or, I used a vegetable peeler and made chocolate curls.

Finally, you can’t make a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers but this one from OXO is by far my favorite. It doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup that will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.

And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I highly recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, good for stacking in the freezer and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. I love them both!
