The 2020 Holidays Recipe Collection
How you doin’? Not all martinis are created equal and not all have to be made from dry gin or vodka and vermouth. Even they get a little time off for the year-end holidays.
Nothing beats the flavor combination of sweet and salty, all wrapped up in a beautifully decorated holiday martini glass painted with chocolate and caramel sauces. This beverage is sure to be a favorite at your next holiday party (even if it’s on Zoom), or Secret Santa exchange.
As long as you're decorating for the holidays, don't forget to decorate the cocktail glasses!
Prep time: 5 to 7 minutes
Yields: 1 cocktail
1/2 ounce chocolate syrup
1/2 ounce caramel syrup
2 ounces Bailey's caramel liquor, plus a little extra for garnishing
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 ounces salted caramel vodka
1 ounce chocolate vodka
1 ounce dark creme de cocoa
1/2 ounce half and half
1 ounce Torani brand salted caramel syrup
1/2 ounce dark chocolate shavings
ChefSecret: The easiest way to make your own fresh chocolate shavings is to grab a bar of chocolate and a vegetable peeler. It you want long flowing stokes of chocolate keep the chocolate at room temperature. If you want small chocolate curls, freeze the chocolate bar for about an hour and then put your peeler to work.
Covid-19 Quip of the Day: “Worry about Covid-19 is like a rocking chair: It gives you something to do but never gets you anywhere. The solution: wear your mask, practice social distancing and wash your hands frequently. I don’t guarantee this will work, but it will take your mind off of the pandemic.”
