the ingredients for how to make a chocolate covered cherry martini

WHAT GOES IN A CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRY MARTINI?

  • This cocktail starts with cherry flavored vodka. It is a nice way to add the cherry flavor, without watering down your martini.
  • Then you add creme de cocoa, a sweet chocolate flavored liqueur.
  • Add some heavy cream to get that nice smooth creamy texture to the drink.
  • Finally, you add a little bit of grenadine to make that great cherry color.

HOW DO YOU MAKE A CHOCOLATE COVERED CHERRY MARTINI?

  • Combine all the ingredients in a martini shaker and shake to combine.
  • Before pouring, drizzle chocolate syrup in the martini glass, swirling the glass while the syrup drips, to get it to cover the glass. We recommend a high quality chocolate syrup that is some what thick, like Ghirardelli.
