Mexican Chocolate Martini
Spread the Chocolate Chipotle Powder out on a large plate. Rim 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses by rolling the edge of each glass on a clean wet sponge, then rolling the edge over the powder. Tap the glass gently to knock off the extra powder. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain immediately into the glasses and serve.Chocolate Chipotle Powder:
2 tablespoons high quality cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground chipotle (dried, smoked jalapenos)
Fold the ingredients together slowly and carefully so as not to knock the powder into the air as the chipotle powder can burn your nose and eyes
