Chocolate and alcohol - what's not to like?! A wicked treat for grown ups with a sweet tooth.


  • 1 cocktail shaker

  • 2 martini glasses

  • 4 shots of vodka

  • 1 shot of cointreau

  • 1 shot of freshly squeezed orange juice

  • 2 tsp cocoa powder, sieved well

  • 4 tsp icing sugar, sieved

  • Ice for the shaker

  • To garnish

  • Mini egg shaped chocolate (to act like olives)

  • Cocktail sticks

  • Cocoa powder for the rim of the glasses

  • 1 egg white, for the rim of the glasses


  • 1.

    To garnish the martini glasses, dip the rim of the glasses in the egg white and then into a little cocoa powder to create a chocolate rim all around the edge of each glass.

  • 2.

    Pour the vodka, cointreau, orange juice, cocoa powder and icing sugar in a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice.

  • 3.

    Shake everything together for about 15 seconds.

  • 4.

    Strain into the two martini glasses.

  • 5.

    For a traditional martini finish, stick a cocktail stick through the chocolate eggs (as you would an olive) and sit in the glasses.
