Almond Joy And Milky Way Martinis Recipes

Martinis are one of the most popular alcoholic beverages that are served at both official and non-official parties, and at bars, clubs, and restaurants. A traditional martini is prepared with vermouth (a wine flavoured with herbs and spices) and gin (a kind of spirit), and garnished with olives. However, the drink, made popular by James Bond, has spawned many variations.

To give a creative twist to a classic, you can also use your favourite chocolate candy bar to not only garnish the drink, but also add flavour to it. Almond Joy and Milky Way are two popular chocolate candy bars, and either of them can be used to prepare a special martini at home.

    Almond Joy martini

    Prep time: 5 minutes
    Cook time: Nil
    Total Time: 5 minutes
    Yield: 1  large glass

    Ingredients:
    Three Olives chocolate vodka: 1 oz
    Coconut rum: 1 oz
    Frangelico: 1 oz
    Chocolate syrup
    Toasted coconut: for rimming
    Ice: As required

    Start the process by preparing the martini glass. Chill your martini glass either by placing it in the freezer for some time, or by filling it with ice and water. Once the glass is cold enough, dip the martini glass rim into the chocolate syrup and then place it upside down in a plate containing shredded, toasted coconut. After the glass rim is completely covered with the shredded coconut, re-chill it in the freezer to allow the chocolate syrup and coconut crust to stick to the glass rim.

    Meanwhile, pour one ounce each of Three Olives chocolate vodka, Frangelico and coconut rum into a cocktail shaker. Then, add ice to the shaker, cover it with its lid, and proceed to shake it until the ingredients are thoroughly combined, and the mixture becomes cold. Take the prepared martini glass out of the freezer, and pour the drink into it. Your Almond Joy martini is now ready. Garnish it with some Almond Joy candy speared on a toothpick, and serve.
