2 oz vodka
1 oz chocolate liqueur
1 oz fresh heavy cream
1 oz Coop's Hot Fudge (plus extra for garnish)
Chocolate shavings or cocoa powder (optional, for garnish)
1. Prepare the Glass: Drizzle a small amount of Coop's Hot Fudge inside a chilled martini glass. Swirl it around to create a decorative pattern on the inside of the glass. You may need to warm the fudge for an easy drizzle.
2. Chill the Glass: Place the martini glass in the freezer while you prepare the cocktail to keep it cold.
3. Shake the Cocktail: In a cocktail shaker, add the vodka, chocolate liqueur, heavy cream, and Coop's Hot Fudge.
4. Add Ice: Fill the shaker with ice, ensuring it's about two-thirds full.
5. Shake Vigorously: Secure the lid on the shaker and shake the cocktail vigorously for about 15-20 seconds. This helps chill the ingredients and create a frothy texture.
6. Strain into the Glass: Remove the martini glass from the freezer and strain the chocolate martini mixture into the prepared glass. The Coop's Hot Fudge lining will create a stunning visual effect.
7. Garnish: Optionally, garnish your chocolate martini with chocolate shavings or a sprinkle of cocoa powder for an extra touch.
8. Serve and Sip: Serve your chocolate martini immediately while it's still ice-cold. Sip slowly and savor the rich, velvety flavors.
This Chocolate Martini is a delightful choice for dessert lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike.
