Time for another martini, I say. This time, a delicious chocolate one that can be served instead of dessert! Rich, creamy and decadently moorish with a hint of hazelnut from the Frangelico.
I first tried this tasty concoction while filling in for a bartender at a friend’s 30th a good few years ago. Everyone loved it so much that we kept getting requests for it for the rest of the night and, even though I’m not a big sweet tooth, it has remained one of my favourite cocktails since.
Now, if you are even less of a sweet tooth than me, you might want to add 1/4 cup of milk to the mix to dilute and soften the flavours lightly, but it’s not entirely necessary as long as the drink is chilled well.
Chocolate honeycomb martini
- 60ml Baileys
- 30ml butterscotch schnapps
- 30ml of Frangelico
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup crushed ice
- Crushed choc covered honeycomb to serve
Place all liqueurs and ice in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds
to blend and chill. Add milk and shake again to combine. Strain into chilled martini glasses.
Serve with a crushed honeycomb topping.
Tip: Add another 1/4 cup of milk to the drink if it’s too rich or strong.
