Three Cheers! Dark, White and Milk Chocolate Martinis for Everyone

Chocolate Martini

In the spirit of a little indulgence amidst all our spring shape-up resolutions, we’re setting our happy-hour-eyes on the most decadent drink of all: the chocolate martini.

Much like sampling a box of chocolates, it’s all about trying out a few different flavor combos until you find that perfect bite — or, in this case, sip. So, we turned to some creative mixologists to create three versions of the popular cocktail, using dark, milk and white chocolates as their base.

The dark chocolate martini, from Los Sueños Marriott Ocean & Golf Resort in Costa Rica, uses rich creme de cacao for a deep, almost bitter taste — balanced by vanilla vodka, chocolate syrup and Irish cream liqueur.

If it’s creaminess you’re after, get your fix from a hit of white chocolate liqueur in the Hilton Orlando’s Thin Mint Martini, inspired by everyone’s favorite Girl Scout cookie.

Lastly, the classic Chocolatini comes from the mixologist at Peacock Alley, the historic bar in the Waldorf Astoria New York. The secret ingredient to this creamy drink: hot chocolate mix.

Our motto: There’s always room for dessert … cocktails.
