How to Make the Perfect Holiday Cocktail: the Chocolate Peppermint Martini
Cue in childhood nostalgia: the smell of fresh-cut mint from your mother's garden crossed with the effervescent feel a fresh cup of hot cocoa by the fire-pit next to family and friends brings. Ahhh, such fond times, back when living was so care-free and super easy. After a year like 2020, it is safe to say, we all probably need a drink (or ten) by now.
Fast-track to adulthood, or as some may call it "Mommy's special time" - read up, this cocktail is for you!
Whether you are looking to host an intimate group of family or friends, or just making this for yourself, you are certainly in for a treat with this recipe.
Professional chef and friend of Anatomie, Pamela Morgan, recently whipped up a delightful cocktail to share during an intimate social distancing gathering with some of her closest friends and it was a huge hit.

Chocolate Peppermint Martini
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, melted (you can do this in the microwave or use a double boiler)
- ½ cup peppermint candy, crushed in a food processor or crushed in a Ziplock bag with a mallet
- 4 oz. Peppermint Schnapps
- 4 oz. Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
- 4 oz. Vodka
- 4 oz. Vanilla Creamer (I use Super Creamer)
What you will need:
- Cocktail Shaker
- Martini Glasses
- Shot Glass / Jigger
In your cocktail shaker, mix together the Peppermint Schnapps, Godiva chocolate liqueur, vodka, and vanilla creamer. Add ice and shake.
Place 1-2 teaspoons of the melted chocolate into the bottom of the martini glasses, and then strain the cocktail into the glasses on top of the melted chocolate. Serve and enjoy!
PAMELA’S TIPS & TRICKS:
Use half & half creamer for the added richness and consistency. For best results, use farmers fresh or organic kind, if at all possible
