Chocolate Martini Drink Recipe

February's Beverage Journal, otherwise known as the Beverage Bible, had an article titled Beyond the Chocolate Martini. Included in the article were a number of chocolate martini drink recipes. They are as follows:

Chocolate Kiss

2 parts Pinnacle Chocolate
1 part White Creme de Menthe
1 part White Creme de Cacao

Shake with ice and strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a chocolate kiss and mint leaf.

Choco-Lat Cherry Bliss

1 part Choco-Lat
1 part Amaretto Almond Liqueur
1 part Milk
1/2 part Grenadine syrup

Garnish with whipped cream and a cherry.

This one sounds delicious to me.

A Kiss From Mother Earth

2 oz. 360 Double Chocolate
1 oz. Agave Nectar
3 oz. Cream Chocolate Syrup Drizzle chocolate syrup in glass.

Shake remaining ingredients with ice and strain into glass. Garnish with Japanese Pocky Sticks.

I thought the Japanese Pocky sticks added an interesting touch.
