These martinis have become a holiday tradition for our friends and family. They are SO easy to whip-up, and are absolutely delicious! So delicious, they come with a warning label: drink with caution!
What you need to make the white chocolate martinis:
One of the best parts about these martinis is how simple they are to mix-up. Here is what you will need:
- White chocolate liquor
- Vanilla vodka
- Creme de Cacao (the clear one)
- Heavy cream, or half-and-half
Gather all of your ingredients, and add them to a cocktail shaker- and shake em' up!
How to make them pretty:
Gently pour the white sugar crystals onto a shallow plate that is large enough for the rim of the glass to fit in. Get your martini glasses, and rub a lemon wedge all over the rim of the glass. Be generous so that the whole rim gets wet.
Next you want to press the rim of the glass directly into the sugar crystals. Set the cup back upright and let it settle. Some of the sugar may drip down the side of the glass- which makes for a beautiful presentation!
Where you can find the alcohol needed for the martinis:
Sometimes the white chocolate liquor is a bit difficult to find. Most major liquor stores, such as ABC Fine Wine and Spirits or Total Wine and More should carry a variation though. Godiva makes a line of chocolate liquors, which is delicious as ever!
Do I serve the drinks over ice?
No you do not need to serve them over ice, unless you wish! It is important to mix the martinis very well, using a cocktail shaker. Place ice in the cocktail shaker, pour all of your ingredients right over the ice, and shake well.
As you shake it up, the martini will begin to chill. Pour it directly into your glass, and enjoy! If the liquor begins to get too warm for your liking, add a couple cubes of ice directly to your glass.
How long leftover martini mix can be stored:
Store leftover mixture in a pitcher with a lid, or a carafe that can be closed. Place it in the refrigerator for up to one week. The mixture may have some separation, which is normal. Simply stir it up before serving.
The most important thing!
Enjoy yourself to the fullest, but be careful drinking these martinis! They are so delicious. Although they are not overly sweet, the alcohol is definitely masked by the sweetness of the chocolates. So the strength of them will most certainly sneak up on you!
