I think it’s safe to say there are a lot of people who have a secret love affair with chocolate. I want to also point out that a lot of adults have a secret love affair with happy hour too because of the happiness a few adult beverages can bring after a long week. And that takes me to the martini. 🙂
Martini’s are great, and because they are typically made with mostly liquor (vodka or gin), they tend to be quite boozy. Since the holidays are right around the corner, and I have never shared a chocolate cocktail, I wanted to think of few great ingredients that would go well in a sweeter version of a martini. So, say hello to my Chocolate Pecan Cream Martini.
I have a really strong sweet tooth and mixing anything with pecan liqueur can definitely satisfy my need for something sweet. And adding a rum based cream liqueur helps to add a little extra creaminess and flavor.
I decided to go with a coconut vodka to add even more sweetness (go figure) to this great tasting beverage because chocolate seems to be compatible with almost anything, especially coconut.
