Samoa Girl Scout Cookies are my absolute weakness. Despite having two scouts, I try to never order them, because me, a box of these beauties, and a quite room is chef’s kiss perfection.

The great news is that you can enjoy that great chocolate-caramel-coconut cookie goodness all year long in the form of this insane martini. This is the ultimate dessert cocktail and I know you are going to enjoy every last sip.

Samoa Martini Ingredients

Here is what you will need to make this delicious dessert martini. For the full recipe with all of the measurements, scroll to the recipe card at the bottom of the post.

  • Creme de cocoa: A delicious chocolate liqueur.
  • Vodka: You don’t need a top-shelf vodka for this recipe, something mid-level like Tito’s would work well.
  • Cream of coconut: See more on this below.
  • Caramel sauce and fudge sauce
  • Chocolate drizzle for garnishing glass. See my recommendation below.
  • Whipped cream and toasted coconut optional for garnish.

How To Toast Coconut

Learning how to toast coconut is a snap. It is so easy to do and yields the perfect ingredient for so many different recipes.

How to Make a Samoa Martini

  • Prep your glasses. Drizzle chocolate sauce around the inside of your martini glasses and place them in the freezer.
  • Combine ingredients. Add them to a shaker cup and mix well using a whisk or immersion blender. Make sure all of the sauces are broken down and distributed.
  • Add ice and shake. When the outside of the shaker feels cold, strain into one of your prepared glasses. Top with whipped cream and toasted coconut.

Cream of Coconut vs Coconut Cream

Cream of coconut has been processed and sweetened which gives it a thick, syrupy texture commonly used in cocktails to add sweetness. Coconut cream is unsweetened and a very thick cream. They are not interchangeable so make sure you get cream of coconut for this recipe. I share a handy squeeze bottle below that makes it easy to add to drink recipes like this one!


Sweet cream of coconut is perfect to add to your favorite coconut cocktails and recipes.

Make a Boozy Float!

To make the cocktail even sweeter and more of a float, add one scoop of vanilla ice cream to the glass after making it.

How to Serve

Serve your Samoa Martini immediately after preparing so that it stays nice and cold. The martini can be served as is or garnished with whipped cream and toasted coconut. Add a Samoa cookie to the rim of your martini glass for a crunchy treat.
