Terry’s Chocolate Orange Tini
1 oz vodka
1/2 oz creme de cacao
1/2 oz triple sec
Get this, we made a chocolate rim. My darling friend was over this evening, and she was able to partake in martini madness! We decided to create an extra special martini with chocolate rim to boot. So, let’s begin…
Strong (Strong enough for Karen?) Absolutely. There is no buffer whatsoever, just alcohol right into your belly. The chocolate rim did not help one bit.
Tastiness (Was Karen happy that she was able to be a part of martini 17?) She didn’t use those exact words, but I am pretty sure it was the best time she has ever had with a martini glass in her hand. She kept making really funny faces as she sipped. I would caption it, “mmm, this is really gooOOH GOD that’s strong.”
Difficulty (Was it hard to melt the chocolate chips in the microwave and then dip the rim of the martini glass into it? It looks so professional…) Thanks! Ya, it looks pretty cool, doesn’t it? We were able to figure it out. And then, of course, it is just a matter of shaking the damn thing like you were mad at it.
Overall (Is Karen really a good judge?) Probably not. I don’t know if Karen is at the level of alcoholism I have descended into quite yet. She’ll get there, with a little help from me. Or maybe she can guide me through the inevitable ‘sober March.’
Thanks Karen, I am happy you could make it.
