Holiday Entertaining Cocktails: Chocolate-Orange Martini


I continuously get inspired by Alicia over at Boozed and Infused and when I saw her infusion recipe for a Chocolate-Orange Liqueur, I knew that I had to make it for the holidays!  I absolutely LOVE the flavor combination of orange and chocolate.  The idea of making a liqueur that tasted like a orange tootsie pop seemed like a holiday wish come true!

Chocolate-Orange Martini from Boozed and Infused

  • 2 oz Chocolate-Orange Liqueur (see recipe below)
  • 2 oz Light Creme de Cacao
  • Orange Twist

Combine in a cocktail shaker with ice, and serve in a chilled martini glass with an orange twist.

Chocolate-Orange Liqueurfrom Boozed and Infused

  • Zest of 3 lg oranges
  • 1/4 cup cacao nibs — vegan
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 cup vodka

Place all above ingredients in a glass jar, and close tight. Shake well and allow to infuse for abut 4 weeks.  Strain through a filter, cheese cloth, jelly bag, and coffee filters.

      I’m usually not a big martini fan either but the chocolate and orange really makes it more about yummy tastiness than anything else 😉

    This sounds like a great & sophisticated combo! I’m all for anything chocolate! I’ve been working on some holiday cocktails too, I’m hoping to post in a few days. It’s hard work tasting all those cocktails! Ha!

      I know…it’s just so difficult the things we must do in the name of good blog posts! 😉 It’s just like how much my husband hates when I have to cook a bunch of new recipes for him to try out so I can blog about them! 🙂
