Valentines Day is right around the corner, and of course everyone has their own opinions on this now, much known Hallmark holiday. Being the hopeless romantic that I am, it is one of my favorite holidays. Even at a young age I loved celebrating this day with my conversation hearts and store bought cards that were always hand selected very carefully to make sure the image and words were just right for the classmate who would be receiving it. I also remember hoping that the “Be Mine” card from the cutest boy in class was carefully selected just for me.
That all being said, I know that most people may have a whole different outlook on this holiday, but I am here to clarify… It doesn’t matter who you may spend this Valentine’s Day with. Whether you’re solo, with friends, or attached, there is a lot of love and lots of cocktails to go around. So why not treat yourself? The drink I will be serving, and one I absolutely love is the Godiva Chocolate Martini.
6 oz. Godiva chocolate or white chocolate liqueur
6 oz. creme de coccoa
2 oz. vodka or vanilla vodka
Your choice of garnish for top
Chill four long-stemmed martini glasses in your freezer for about 15 minutes
Combine all ingredients in a martini shaker over ice. Shake.
Drizzle the inside of each chilled martini glass with chocolate syrup. Divide the martinis among the glasses.
