Decked out for Hanukkah, our chocolate martini glitters with golden gelt. A decadent dessert in drink form, this chocolate-milk-for-grownups can be enhanced with a splash of another flavored liqueur — but the simplest version is dangerously delicious just as it is.
2–3 tablespoons chocolate syrup
Chocolate gelt coins
1½ ounces potato vodka
1½ ounces chocolate liqueur
¾ ounce ginger, orange, coffee, or hazelnut liqueur if desired
Pour chocolate sauce onto a small dish. Turn stemmed cocktail glass upside down and dip the rim in the chocolate. Turn right side up.
With a sharp knife make a thin slice halfway through the diameter of a chocolate coin (still in its golden foil). Place coin on rim of glass.
Combine vodka and liqueur in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about 15 seconds and pour into cocktail glass.
