makes 2-3 drinks
If you like chocolate, creamy, strong drinks this is for you. The combination of the spicy creamy chocolate makes the perfect martini to impress and treat your friends, perfect for an after-dinner drink or even a drink to serve as a dessert and final course.
Chocolate Chipotle Powder, recipe follows
1 1/2 ounces dark chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 ounces chocolate vodka
1 1/2 ounces tequila (preferable 100 percent agave reposado)
1 1/2 coffee flavor liqueur (recommended: Kahlua)
Chocolate Chipotle Powder:
2 tablespoons high quality cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground chipotle (dried, smoked jalapenos)
1 tablespoon ground pepitas (toasted pumpkin seeds)
Chocolate fudge for garnish
Directions for Martini:
Spread the Chocolate Chipotle Powder out on a large plate. Rim 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses by rolling the edge of each glass on a clean wet sponge, then rolling the edge over the powder. Tap the glass gently to knock off the extra powder. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain immediately into the glasses and serve, garnish with a small piece of chocolate fudge.
Directions for Chocolate Chipotle Powder:
Fold the ingredients together slowly and carefully so as not to knock the powder into the air as the chipotle powder can burn your nose and eyes.
