Chocolatini and the TIFF Tickets Winner!

Sometimes you are just too full for cake or ice cream but want a little something sweet while you curl up on the couch with your significant other, the remote, and assorted puppies.
This is where dessert martinis come in handy and what is better than a little after-dinner chocolate of the liquid variety?

Creamy Chocolatini #1

makes 2

4 oz vodka
2.5 oz Bailey's Irish Cream
2 oz crème de cacao (I used white but either will do)

Shake together with ice and strain into martini glasses, drizzle around the (inside) edges with chocolate syrup.

And speaking of chocolate...

My good friend Heather (Girlichef) has started a movie-watching cooking club called Food'n Flix with Ree from Milk, Sugar, Musings & Love. Love to watch movies? Love to cook? Check it out here and join in the fun! September's movie is Chocolat.
