This is a drink that's as pretty as it is a sweet indulgence. In fact, we like to call it dessert in a martini glass. It tastes a bit like those Chocolate Orange Cream candy eggs, but a whole lot better and more grown up. Wanna really make this pretty? Drizzle some chocolate syrup lightly across the finished drink in a zig zag pattern. Oh yummy!
- 2 teaspoons cocoa powder (for garnish)
- 1 teaspoon superfine sugar (for garnish)
- 1 1⁄2 ounces chocolate liqueur (Godiva)
- 1 ounce irish cream (Bailey's)
- 3⁄4 ounce Grand Marnier
- orange twist (for garnish)
- Mix two parts bittersweet chocolate powder and one part superfine sugar on a small plate. Rub the outside rim of a martini glass with water and then dip the outside rim into the chocolate-sugar mixture. Set aside.
- Add Godiva liqueur and Bailey's to a shaker filled two-thirds with ice. Shake for 30 seconds and strain into martini glass. Float Gran Marnier Centenaire over the top and garnish with orange twist.
Oh gosh, this is SO good. I improvised a bit, used Godiva white chocolate liqueur, Panama Jack French vanilla cream, and rimmed the glass with Ovaltine :) I found the Grand Marnier was a bit overpowering with the liqueurs that I used, however, so I upped the amounts of the white chocolate liqueur and the French vanilla cream and it was PERFECT. Powerful little drink, yet light and delicious. Thanks so much!
I was out of cocoa powder, so I skipped the rim, but I bet it would be better with it. This was a little sharp for my tastes, but if someone made it for me, I would certainly drink it again!
I used Godiva white chocolate liqueur cause the other I got was cappucino. The taste was so good. I didn't measure the Grand Marnier I put on top. Maybe it was an ounce. I loved the taste. It's beautiful to serve to friends. Thanks Jess. Made for Holiday tag
