The relationship between chocolate and fruit is a storied one. In fact, in ancient China and Mesopotamia, heated sugar syrup was used to preserve the fruit and prevent spoilage. It’s interesting to note that a food preservation technique has led to a relationship that has lasted through millennia. Of course, these days, there are all sorts of candied fruit combinations.

Chocolate-covered fruit is heavily in demand, and is often associated with romantic holidays, such as Valentine’s Day. Strawberries are often served with chocolate fountains at formal functions, for example. Japan has a chocobana tradition, where bananas are covered in chocolate, and topped off with additional sprinkles, and other ingredients. As with any beloved flavor in popular culture, it is only right that the flavor come with an accompanying cocktail. The chocolate-orange combination has proven to be one of the most popular chocolate/fruit combinations, which is why the chocolate and orange martini exists today.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • ½ ounce of white crème de cacao
  • Dash of orange liqueur
  • Ice

Equipment:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Cocktail glass

Preparation:

  1. Place chocolate chunks into a heat-safe bowl.
  2. Place the bowl over a pot of water.
  3. Heat/simmer until the chocolate melts completely.
  4. Pour the chocolate onto a plate, and dip the rim in the chocolate.
  5. Stand the glass upright, and allow the chocolate to set.
  6. Chill the glass.
  7. Shake the ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker.
  8. Strain into the cocktail glass

The chocolate and orange martini is a sophisticated dessert martini, and the chocolate rim is a nice added touch for a special occasion, although of course it isn’t completely necessary. Regardless, the chocolate and orange martini is a perfect way to satisfy a sweet tooth while still maintaining a citrus flavor. Although a garnish isn’t necessary whatsoever, the natural go-to would be an orange peel. For those with a candy sweet-tooth, or a fruit sweet-tooth, this drink helps satisfy both!
