Salted Caramel Triple Threat Chocolate Martini

Salted Caramel Triple Threat Chocolate Martini

Let's talk about cocktails with salted rims. We think about margaritas, right? Those huge, double sized frozen margaritas, served at my favorite Tex-Mex restaurant, that were responsible for a few sessions of dancing on the bar back in the day.  Oops, I digressed. OK, let's talk about chocolate instead. As in, it makes the perfect romantic cocktail.

This drink, though, is a lot of chocolate and I'm a big fan of sweet and salty together.

I think so much sweet becomes more interesting with a touch of salt. Like a luscious chocolate bonbon topped with a few sprinkles of sea salt at those fancy confectionery stores.

A little sip of sweet, a little salt on the tongue, a little buzz from the vodka and I'd say it will be a very happy Valentine's Day. Cheers!

Per Serving:
1 1/2 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Buttershots caramel liqueur
1/2 oz. Creme de cacao
1/2 oz. Chocolate liqueur
1 oz. Chocolate ice cream
1 oz. Milk
Sea salt for rimming

Place some sea salt in a shallow dish. Wet the rim of a cocktail glass with water and roll in the salt. We're not looking for a thick salt coating like on a margarita, just a touch. Refrigerate for a few minutes to set. Combine the vodka, caramel liqueur, creme de cacao, chocolate liqueur, milk and ice cream in a cocktail shaker. Fill with ice and shake well to break up the ice cream. Pour into the prepared glass.
