Take a few minutes and thoroughly wash your hands and the entire work area that you will be using to make this recipe. Also, do not forget to wash or clean all the utensils, glasses and other items needed to prepare this wonderful cocktail. You might want to make it a habit of keeping your work surfaces clean in the kitchen before preparing any type of food items.
Take a cocktail shaker and fill it with crushed ice. However, you can also use an electric blender for this purpose if you do not have the shaker. You can use ice cubes in case of blender. Remember that it is entirely up to you as to the amount of ice you want to use in this recipe as too much can make your mixture watery.
Now, add in 2 oz vodka and 1 1/2 oz white creme de cacao and shake vigorously until all the ingredients mix properly. If you want your cocktails to be a little light then you can always reduce the amount of vodka that you use as this will not have a significant impact on the taste of the cocktail. While mixing make sure that you get a smooth texture as you should check the consistency while shaking.
Strain your mixture into a pre-chilled martini glass properly rimmed with powdered cocoa. Do not forget to strain through a sieve with thin holes in order to remove any ice cubes within your drink. It might be difficult at first to put powdered cocoa on the rim of the glass, keep practicing and you will get it right.
Your Chocolate Martini is all set, garnish it with the chocolate chips in order to give it an attractive look. You can also garnish your martini glass with fruit wedges. It is entirely up to you as to how you want to serve and garnish this lovely cocktail. Your friends and family members will definitely enjoy this drink.
