One of the drawbacks of dessert martinis is that they are often too overwhelming. Of course, to chocolate lovers worldwide, the martinis are perfect – but for those who enjoy more subtle hints of a taste, it certainly doesn’t “hit the spot” for them.
One way to have a more subtle dessert martini is to try a Mint ChocaChata Martini. We all are aware that mint and chocolate have quite the relationship when it comes to the dessert world, and martinis often strive to replicate the best flavor combinations of the world. This particular martini is no exception. The drink also has an extremely attractive green hue to it, that can certainly capture some attention.
- 2 ounces of RumChata Cream Liqueur
- 1 ounce of chocolate vodka
- ½ ounce of green crème de menthe
- Pour the liqueur, vodka, and crème de menthe into a cocktail shaker over ice.
- Shake well.
- Strain into a chilled martini glass.
- Cocktail shaker
- Martini glass
One way the Mint ChocoChata Martini glass is a little more subtle is that it already uses cream liqueur and chocolate vodka, so additional cream or chocolate is unnecessary for the drink. This allows it to be a much lighter dessert drink, which is great for those who want to have more than one. The green hue also make it the natural dessert drink for a St. Patricks Day celebration, or any green-themed occasion in general.
It also is a way of having a dessert drink that isnt overwhelmed by milk, cream, or chocolate, as the mint helps to balance out the flavors a little bit. It is an obvious dessert choice for anyone who is a fan of mint, in general. The flavor is so addictive that you might even want to take a shot which is easy to make, as it is essentially the exact same recipe, but simply in a shot glass. When it comes time for a more understated dessert martini, this certainly is the obvious choice.
