What You'll Need to Make a Raspberry Chocolate Martini
- Chocolate Liqueur: I used Milk Chocolate Godiva Liqueur. This liqueur will give a martini a rich and creamy chocolate flavor.
- Vodka: For this recipe, I used Absolut Raspberry vodka. It has a refreshing and divine raspberry flavor.
- Crème de Cacao: I used DeKuyper Dark Crème de Cacao. It's one of my favorite chocolate liqueurs.

Expert Tips and Tricks
- Chill the martini glasses: Before I pour the drink, I always chill the glass in the freezer. This will keep the drink cold longer.
- Use crushed ice: I like to use crushed ice to make it extra foamy.
- Shake the cocktail shaker vigorously: This step is crucial. Shaking the cocktail shaker vigorously will ensure that all ingredients are incorporated, and you will have the beautiful foam once you pour the drink.
Recipe Variations and Ingredient Substitutions
- Make Raspberry White Chocolate Martini: Use White Godiva Chocolate Liqueur instead of the Milk Chocolate Godiva Liqueur.
- Make Raspberry Espresso Martini: Use Baileys Espresso instead of the Milk Chocolate Godiva Liqueur.
- Use different garnishes: I kept it simple and added a few chocolate pieces and a few raspberries on the cocktail pick. You can rim the glass with melted chocolate or any chocolate syrup you prefer. You can also drizzle a little bit of chocolate syrup into a chilled glass before pouring the drink.
