When you think of a Martini you are probably thinking a simple mix of vermouth and gin and served with an olive or a lemon twist. However, over time, the martini has evolved into a billion different flavors.

The White Chocolate Martini is definitely one of the sweet cocktails one of the sweetest and a fabulous dessert! Although the true origin of this particular drink is unknown, it is still a great choice for after dinner or for the holiday season!

What goes into a White Chocolate Martini?

With only four simple ingredients in this drink recipe, you can make this rich, creamy chocolate milk for adults!

  • Vanilla vodka: Vanilla vodka is any already prepared flavored vodka with vanilla essence.
  • White chocolate liquor: Milky and white and made from three ingredients, i.e., white chocolate, cream, and alcohol. Its flavor is just like white chocolate that has been melted with a touch of cream. There are a few good brands including Godiva Liqueur. If you can’t find it at your local store, you can always use Irish Cream liqueur.
  • Cream: You can use heavy cream or half and a half for this recipe. The cream gives this drink smoothness, richness, and, of course, creaminess.
  • Creme de Cacao: Another additional chocolate flavor! It gives extra chocolaty goodness to this drink. If you don’t happen to have crème de cacao, you can simply mix water with chocolate extract and use it instead. Make sure you use White Creme de Cacao, not brown.
  • Chocolate shavings: Add shaved chocolate bits to decorate this drink. You can use both white and dark chocolate shavings depending on your style.

What tools you need to make White Chocolate Martini

Making White Chocolate Martini is as easy as saying chocolate! You’ll be needing a cocktail shaker for the White Cocktail Martini recipe! Grab a jigger, a barspoon, strainer, and martini glasses as well. The total time is about 5 minutes to make this sweet treat for chocolate lovers and one of my favorite cocktails.

Start by filling the cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Now pour vanilla vodka, white chocolate liqueur, heavy cream and crème di cacao and seal the shaker. Start shaking vigorously so that everything is well combined. Shape for about a minute. Double strain the drink into the prepared glasses and enjoy!

  • 🍸Top Tip(le): It’s super fun to decorate this one either for a holiday or just because. Here are some tips!
    • Colored sugar: Decorate the rim of the glass with colored sugar. Place your martini glass in the freezer for 5 minutes and then dip rim into sugar syrup or chocolate syrup. Now dip it in colored sugar. You can color the sugar by adding a few drops of food color to it. You can even add a rainbow effect by mixing a few colors.
    • Chocolate shavings: The simplest way to decorate your cocktail is by adding white and brown chocolate shavings. You can also add chocolate chips or pour chocolate syrup or chocolate sauce on the bottom of the glass.
    • Cocoa powder: Sprinkle a bit of cocoa powder on top. Use a stencil you make an image. Get creative!
    • Crushed candy canes: You can garnish it with crushed candy canes or decorate the glass rim with them to make a White Chocolate Peppermint Martini.
    • Fresh fruit: Drop a chocolate-covered strawberry in your drink and enjoy!
    • Hot! : You can always heat it up and make an adult style Hot Chocolate, a super decadent cocktail!
