This week’s happy hour post is all about how to have dessert in a glass with this almond brownie martini. I had multiple days of travel this week, not to mention a project or two that made me feel like I was living the movie Groundhog Day. So oh, yeah, the velvety chocolate bliss of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur was definitely in order. And drinking dessert before dinner – that was in order, too.
My almond brownie martini takes a few ingredients, including Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Stoli Vanilla Vodka, Crème de Cacao, and Amaretto. And cherries, too. If you are like me and planning out your Friday happy hour early on in the week, you might just realize you’re missing a key ingredient, say, like the Godiva Chocolate Liqueur. What to do? Go to Drizly! Drizly is an amazing service that lets you browse for wine, beer, and liquor online and then order – and then it shows up at your door a couple of days later. How awesome is that? Plus, one of my biggest problems with shopping (and this is pretty much true with anything from alcohol to clothes) is feeling pressured to make a decision while I’m browsing in a store. Drizly completely takes away that pressure – I can browse online as long as I want and order when I’m ready to order.
I couldn’t resist doing a fancy rim on my martini. I used melted white chocolate and chopped up dark chocolate chunks to achieve the yummiest rim I’ve ever had on a martini. A quicker and just as yummy rim for this cocktail is a bit of super fine sugar and a bit of cocoa powder. So perfect to sip on one of these after a long work week.
