Black Martini: Chocolate and Coffee

by Chrissy

Although it’s not quite time for the weekend to start, this is a cocktail recipe that I just couldn’t wait another day to share with you!

I know that you will find it in your heart to excuse my eagerness.

Anyways, while we are on a chocolate and coffee kick...
(Remember these German Chocolate-filled Cupcakes? They would go great with this cocktail. Just saying…)

I bring you the delectable martini that we cozied up with while at a tasting event in Downtown San Diego. Check out this 32nd-story balcony view as we sipped on our libations.

 The Hyatt calls it the Black Martini.

We call it the most amazing dessert cocktail that will ever grace your lips. It tastes like chocolate candy, reminiscent of the marbled white and milk chocolate stick atop this magnificent mixture.

With a great view, and in great company it was a perfectly good way to end the day.
