Martini Monday - For Lovers!

First of all, if you haven't entered yet, be sure to enter my Victoria's Secret *mini-giveaway* - that is IF you like *sexy little things*...

Yay!  It is yet again Martini Monday and since this is Valentine's Week, I picked some sensational, love provoking goodies.  These would be perfect for couples to share but maybe even better for those of you who might be planning a girls night out for Valentine's Day!  Let's do it!

#1 is the fantastic White Chocolate Raspberry Martini - it really is a dream if you like dessert martinis!  This baby packs a punch for anyone with a sweet tooth by combining 1 oz. white chocolate liqueur, 1 oz. regular chocolate liqueur, a few ounces of half-and-half depending on how creamy you like it, and of course a little raspberry vodka.  Garnish with some raspberries and you are on your way to a delicious treat!



#2 is a the Chocolate Lovers Martini and it is made with about 2 ounces of creme de cacao, a little Bailey's Irish Cream, and about 1.5 ounces of vanilla vodka (less if you don't want to fall out in the floor right away).  The secret to this one is to make the swirls on the glass with chocolate syrup BEFORE pouring in the actual drink.  Shave a little chocolate on top and you are golden.  Yum!





#3 is the Cosmic Valentine Martini - this one is a little lighter so you can definitely have a few of these if you want ;).  Use your favorite Strawberry Cosmo recipe (mine takes strawberry vodka (Stoli), Triple Sec, a little cranberry juice and a dash of lime) but top it off with some muddled strawberries and then either a splash of Prosecco or champagne!!  

The cool thing about this one is that you could substitute any *love* colored martini - pink, red - and still make it extra special with the addition of the bubbly!  This one just might be a new fave!





Here's to a fabulous V-Day, no matter how you spend it!  Enjoy!

The chocolate martini - LOVE! My stepdad makes a great one but leaves out the baileys and instead drops a Hershey's kiss or hug. makes for a great treat when you're done drinking :)
