The countdown is on! Christmas is around the corner! It’s the last week of school…everyone is ready for a break from the schedule. We can all do it. Unfortunately, covid restrictions have tightened within Alberta and so we’re all getting cozy by the fire- none of us are travelling further then our own homes to celebrate. This however doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate!
The silver lining of celebrating at home? You can wear your flannel PJ’s, fluffy slippers, messy bun and still sip the finest of martini’s. Our recipe for a Cococoffee Martini will carry you through. We promise.
Cococo Chocolatiers Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder is the perfect addition for our martini because of its has a smoother, darker notes. Being able to incorporate a more raw source of chocolate in this recipe was something we were super excited about. All too often you have a drink that has an artificial chocolate flavouring and we didn’t love that idea. They never taste like the real deal!
Cococo’s dutch processed cocoa powder is woodsy and mellow. Excellent for setting the mood. Lol, slippers or black dress…it’s a martini evening.
We have to mention the chocolate shavings from Cococo Chocolatiers. They make life so simple and easy! Who has time to do this?! It’s Christmas, go and get a bag. You’ll rim your glasses, shake over cakes, add to cookies, top a hot chocolate; and find numerous other ideas to spread the shavings. You can choose- milk chocolate, dark or mixed!
Christmas or not; our Cococoffee Martini is the perfect option for winter. It’s warm undertones and smooth sips will warm you inside out. Not a difficult recipe, it’s easily created at home. Let’s get started. Pull out your cocktail shaker and let’s mix!
You’ll start first with 4 oz. coffee. Go ahead and use decaf if you’re heading into the evening hours…we get it 🙂 Then continue to add the other liquors and spirits. Last, measure the Cococo Chocolatiers Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder.
