Though vodka is a more traditional choice for a chocolate martini, this version opts for spicy, earthy rye whiskey, which brings out different flavor notes from the chocolate liqueur. Make sure to whip the cream topping just until thickened, but before it holds any peaks, so it will sit perfectly on top of the cocktail.



  1. Freeze a martini glass for 10 minutes. Drizzle chocolate syrup around the inside, letting the syrup drip into the bottom of the glass, then return to the freezer.
  2. Combine the chocolate liqueur, hazelnut liqueur and rye in a shaker with 1 or 2 ice cubes. Stir well, then strain into the martini glass.
  3. Whisk 2 tablespoons heavy cream in a small bowl until thickened but still pourable. Spoon the cream over the drink and top with shaved chocolate.
