Let's get ready for St. Valentines day. I know there is still time.. but I will try to find some interesting recipes for this day and show you. I'm saying I will try because I'm leaving for work to Stockholm for one week and probably I'll be busy posting photos from Stockholm Furniture Fair. Today I'm starting with this chocolate martini recipe! 



  • -crushed ice cubes
  • -30 g dark chocolate, (70% cocoa solids), plus a piece to serve
  • -25 ml double cream
  • -ice cubes
  • -30 ml vodka
  • -15 ml dry vermouth

1. Fill a martini glass with crushed ice to cool the glass. 

2. Break the chocolate into squares in a bowl. Heat the cream to scorching point and pour over the chocolate. Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth. 

3. Put lots of ice cubes in a cocktail shaker, add the spirits and a double measure of the chocolate sauce (use the rest in a second helping). Put the lid on and shake, shake, shake for 15 seconds. 

4. Discard the crushed ice from the glass and strain in the chocolate Martini. Drop in a small piece of chocolate and serve while still ice cold. 

Variation: for an even sexier drink add a dash of Grand Marnier or Cointreau liqueur and carefully hold a lighter to a strip of orange peel and allow the burnt oils to fall onto the surface of the cocktail.
