There are a number of Chocolate Raspberry Martini recipes out there. I’ve recently updated this one because I wasn’t completely happy with it. For one thing, it was clear (calling for white creme de cacao and clear raspberry vodka), and the look of it didn’t go with the flavors. This version adds not only color, but also a touch of Tia Maria (or another coffee liqueur of your choice). But have no fear; if you prefer the old recipe, I’ve kept it at the bottom of the page.
You can garnish this one in a few ways: put a few fresh raspberries in it, sprinkle cocoa powder across the surface, put a chocolate kiss or two in it, or any combination of the above. You can also rim the glass with sweetened cocoa powder. I prefer to just skewer some raspberries and lay them across the top. It looks elegant and clean.
This is a strong drink, so savor it on a special night in.
