chocolate espresso martini
Cheers to the most wonderful time of the year! Treat yourself or your favorite people to this decadent, smooth Chocolate Espresso Martini by our friend @TheBeetDrop.
The base of this cocktail is a chocolate sauce with two simple ingredients, 72% Dark Chocolate and your favorite non-dairy milk. Chocolate sauce adds the perfect holiday twist to a classic espresso martini.
One of the best parts of this cocktail is how creative you can be with your presentation and garnish. Consider swirling your glass or dipping the rim with melted Endangered Species Chocolate. You can also sprinkle chocolate shavings like Diane did in this recipe. Regardless, this Chocolate Espresso Martini is a show-stopper!
