What better excuse for a Chocolate Martini than Valentine’s Day?
We’re particularly fond of the Godiva Truffletini—so chocolaty that you can have it for dessert. It combines both the original chocolate and white chocolate Godiva liqueurs. But if you only want to buy one bottle, there are enough chocolate liqueur cocktail recipes to keep you mixing until next Valentine’ Day.
RECIPE: GODIVA CHOCOLATE TRUFFLETINI
Ingredients For 1 Cocktail
1 ounce Godiva Original Liqueur
.5 ounce Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur
.5 ounce vodka
Garnish options: chocolate cookie rim, shaved chocolate; a chocolate truffle, heart-shaped bonbon or strawberry notched onto the rim; a cocktail pick with raspberries; or a chocolate syrup garnish* as shown in the photo above
1. COMBINE liqueurs and vodka in a cocktail shaker with ice.
2. SHAKE and strain into a pre-chilled Martini glass.
3. GARNISH and serve.
*Use chocolate syrup in a squeeze bottle to swirl a pattern onto the inside of the glass.

Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, the original flavor.
Godiva Milk Chocolate Liqueur, sweeter than the original.
Godiva Mocha Liqueur, great in a cup of coffee or to amp up a White Russian.
