Occasionally, when I am working at the bar, I will get a request for the often dreaded Chocolate Martini. Don't get me wrong, I love a great dessert drink once every hundred years, however back in the early 2000's I made a million Chocolate Martinis. Literally, one million. This request got me thinking about how to update this age old drink. You know, transforming the desert martini. (Cue the make-over music) My brain began to scheme. How do I convert this demanded beverage from candy sweet to: more sophisticated, more adult, and way less sugary all while still satisfying a serious chocolate craving in a glass? I became obsessed.
