I have a confession to make. I admit, I am a chocoholic and love all things chocolate. I also like spicy food. I dislike sweet drinks and although I am not really a Martini drinker also (gin has always been more my beverage of choice), this recipe of a chocolate martini combines some of the best things in live for me. Depending on your personal taste you may want to start with a little less chili and work your way to the spiciness you prefer.
- Prepare a simple syrup with the addition of cinnamon bark to it.
- Melt the couverture for the decoration, place it in a small bottle or piping bag and swirl it around the chilled martini glass. Set aside.
- Muddle the chili with a little of the cinnamon infused syrup.
- Add the ice cubes to the bar shaker and add all other ingredients with the exception of the chocolate stick to it.
- Cover the shaker with the muddle glass tightly and shake vigorously until all ingredients are well combined and well chilled.
- Remove the muddle glass, and strain the martini into the prepared glasses into the glass.
- Decorate with the chocolate stick and an additional chili and serve immediately.
