Tuesday Treat: Chocolate Cherry Delight Martini

valentines-martinis-660x400Yeah…I’m not much of a martini drinker. In fact, beyond a margarita and the very rare pina colada, I’m not much of a frou-frou drink drinker. But this concoction, when I saw it, made me stop and stare. My two favorite flavors are chocolate and cherry, and chocolate and cherry together. So when I saw this on the Country Outfitter newsletter, I knew I had to share, especially on the heels of Valentine’s Day. If you try this, let us know what you think!

Chocolate Cherry Delight

Ingredients:

6 ounces chocolate almond milk (dark chocolate is amazing) [according to the original posting. I haven’t tried it but may have to for my mocha frappacinos]
4 ounces cherry juice
3 ounces vodka
honey for garnish
dark chocolate sprinkles for garnish

Directions: Coat rims of martini glasses in honey, then dip in chocolate sprinkles. In a cocktail shaker with ice, shake together milk, cherry juice, and vodka. Pour into glasses and top with any leftover sprinkles.

  1. Nix the vodka and I am all over that. I do love me some almond milk and chocolate almond milk is da bomb. (Haven’t tried the dark chocolate kind either, but yum.) =o)

      I see no reason why you can’t make it virgin. Me? I’d pour it over chipped ice to make it slushy. Next time I hit the store, dark chocolate almond milk is definitely on the list!

    I’m not a fan of cherry flavors, but thinking the dark chocolate almond milk would make it better. The dark chocolate almond milk is amazing! I always have some at my house and at work.
