About Chocolate Cream Pie Martini

This chocolate martini has become my go-to comfort drink for any time of the year, but do know what the holidays really make me think of?

Chocolate.

And whipped cream.

And…  booze.

Because that’s just how I like to celebrate.

Now that the holidays are right around the corner, I’ve been working hard to increase the boozy drink recipes I have on this little food blog.

Up until now, I’ve been on a bit of a cocktail kick, so it only seemed fair that I should spice things up with a martini.

And a chocolate martini with whipped cream at that! It’s like a Godiva chocolate martini and chocolate cream pie all wrapped into one.

I mean, when it comes to satisfying my drink necessities, I’m not too picky – I’ll take what I can get – but how could you resist this creamy, festive drink?

I know I couldn’t!

How to make a chocolate cream pie cocktail.

This Godiva martini tastes like a better (and more chocolaty) version of a classic mudslide.

You could serve it on the rocks (as it was in the photo), where it’s shaken then strained.

OR you could toss it all in the blender, ice and all, and enjoy a more frosty treat.

Any of these methods will get you a creamy chocolate drink that’s sure to warm up your holiday.

Speaking of warm, I can already tell you from experience that this is the perfect sipping drink while sitting next to a roaring fire.

Why is that?

Because the weather has finally become a bit “chilly” here in Phoenix (or, at least, our version of it) and an old friend of mine has been jumping at the opportunity light a fire in our fireplace almost every night.

It’s become part of my nightly ritual to make this martini and curl up on the couch while the fire burns.

With nights like these, I have a good feeling this Godiva chocolate martini will quickly become a holiday tradition in our house.

How to measure this drink

This cocktail is written like a standard drink recipe, meaning that instead of an exact measurement (ex: 1 cup) the recipe will read “1 part.”

This can sometimes be a little confusing, but I’ve found the best way to think of it as this:

Recipes that measure in parts usually mean it’s written so that you can adjust the size of the drink to whatever you want and the measurements they give you (1 part, 1/2 part, etc) are so you can keep the ratio of the ingredients correct.

For example, let’s say you wanted to make one drink – this typically means you’re using 1 standard shot glass for measuring. So then when the recipe says “1 part” you would interpret that amount as “1 standard shot glass” full. If the recipe says “1/2 part” you’d fill the shot glass halfway so that it’s “1/2 standard shot glass.” OR, let’s say you wanted to make enough drinks for a few friends. When making the drink you could interpret “1 part” as “1 cup” (or “1/2 part” to “1/2 cup.”)

This way the drink will taste the same no matter what size you make it.

What are the exact measurements for one drink?

In a hurry and want simple measurements for just one drink? No problem! Just use this as a guide:

2 oz RumChata

2 oz vanilla vodka

2 oz Godiva chocolate liqueur

1/2 oz chocolate syrup

You can also select “Metric” measurements in the recipe card below to see these numbers.

But wait, why is this recipe called a “martini”?

I know the all the drink connoisseurs out there are shaking their head at me, insisting that this is so not a martini, and I totally agree. This drink is not a “true” martini, as martinis are typically clear or pale drinks with a citrus twist. But as for why I decided to call this drink a martini, the best answer I can give is this:

Time.

I originally discovered this recipe ages ago, and while the ingredients haven’t really changed, the look of the drink has. When it was first served to me, it was styled like a martini – in a martini glass with a cherry wedged on the rim – so calling it a “martini” was more of a play on words than a reflection of what the drink really was. I thought the whole idea of the drink was cute, so I made a point to learn the recipe.

Fast forward a few years later, and there I was, anxious to share this recipe with the internets, and not giving a second thought to how the name I’ve always used for this drink wouldn’t really match up with the way I serve it now. I stopped using a martini glass because the stemless wine glasses are easer to hold (and, quite frankly, they hold a lot more!)

So, to all the martini purists out there, I apologize for not thinking the name through on this one. This drink was always meant to be a fun twist on a classic, and I hope it still seems that way, even with (or maybe because of?) the mismatched name.

    How much is one part?

    • Nadine Coburn

    This looks so good, I am heading to the store to get what I need to make it.

    • Charlie

    I totally understood the directions with 1 part, 1 part that. But then along came the 1 TBSP of Chocolate Syrup. How do I adjust that to the other parts?

    • April

    Where did you get that martini shaker?????!!!!

    • RJKoliner

    Can the Godiva Chocolate liquor be substituted with 360 Double Chocolate Vodka?

    • Hey there! I haven’t tried this, but I believe so – as long as it’s chocolate vodka, it should taste good 😀

    I’m so jealous that you get to light your fireplace. It’s a humid 75 degree day here in southeast Texas but even without the fireplace, I could curl up on the sofa and enjoy this wonderful cocktail. I could go for one right now, in fact.

    • Fireplaces are seriously the best 🙂 Hopefully the weather will cool off a bit more in TX for you soon!
