Frozen Hot Chocolate Martini

After getting so much love for my no-frills frozen hot chocolate hack a couple weeks ago, I decided to take it up a notch and make a version that was more appropriate as an after work treat.  Along with this recipe being super easy, it combines my favorite things – chocolate and alcohol! And thanks to the sugar free hot chocolate, it’s still skinnier than using a chocolate liqueur.. so feel free to pour yourself a second once the first one disappears quickly!


Ingredients (makes 2 – feel free to cut in half for a single serving):
1 packet of sugar free hot chocolate mix
½ cup of cold water
3 shots of whipped cream vodka
2 shots of Baileys


Mix chocolate mix and water in a cocktail shaker (without ice!) until fully dissolved/no lumps remain.  Add all other ingredients and fill the shaker with ice.  Shake until nice and frosty.  Strain into a martini glass, and enjoy!  It’s like Christmas in July/a trip to boozy visit to Serendipity 3, without the snow and annoying crowds!  What’s your favorite way to spice up an otherwise non-alcoholic beverage?!
Cheers!

Thrilled to be linking up today with EmilyKateJennifer JuniperEmilyKristenEmilyMandy, and Mandy!!!

    1. It really does! In this case I used the caramel Baileys because I was out of the original and it made it creamy and super delish!

    1. Exactly! I think I read somewhere that you should forego dessert if you're having a cocktail.. Not that I ever list to that but at least here you are having 2 in 1! Thanks for stopping by- we love new readers!
