When I think Valentine’s Day, I think of chocolate.  And, chocolate isn’t just for eating.  Why not whip up a drink to celebrate with your love this year?  I think anyone would appreciate this Chocolate Martini.


chocolate syrup


4 oz. chocolate liqueur

4 oz. vanilla vodka

4 oz. Bailey’s irish creme

strawberries and chocolate bar for optional garnish


Swirl the chocolate syrup in a martini glass.  Then put the rest of ingredients into a shaker and shake, shake, shake until chilled.  Pour into glasses.  Garnish with strawberry and shaved chocolate if desired.
