Christmas Cocktail: Chocolate And Raspberry Martini

by Niamh ODonoghue
25th Dec 2016

Nothing says ?party? like a signature cocktail, and Fallon & Byrne has created this one especially for IMAGE.

Chocolate And Raspberry Martini Serves 2-4


Good quality chocolate

Handful of raspberries (frozen or fresh)

Raspberry flavoured?vodka

White cr’me de cacao


1 First, melt some chocolate and pour a small amount into a Martini glass. Place the glasses into the fridge to let the chocolate set and cool.

2 Dip some raspberries into the melted chocolate and place into the fridge to set. We like to dip just half of each raspberry, as it adds some colour to the drink.

3 Add 1.75 shots of raspberry-flavoured vodka and 1.25 shots of white cr’me de cacao to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake well and double strain into your chilled Martini glass.

4 Spear the chocolate-covered raspberries onto a cocktail stick and garnish on the edge of the glass.
