Pampered Chef: How to make a chocolate martini?

    I was thinking of offering Chocolate Martini's as part of my Chocolate Bliss shows. I've seen at least one recipe on this board. My question is - can this be made in the family size pitcher? Or do you need to buy a shaker? I've never made a martini before...

    Here is the recipe:

    Combine equal parts vanilla vodka and clear creme de cocao.

    Thanks!

    I've made that exact recipe in the regular QSP. Considering a serving is 4-6 ounces, the 2 quart QSP holds 10-16 servings. And they're POTENT! You won't need more than that, especially because there are likely to be people at the show who don't have one.

    I agree, I with that ratio of liquor to other liquids, 4 oz would be a large serving in my book. So maybe even doing just half of the small QSP pitcher would be enough.

    So I don't have to shake them? Just stir?

    Problem is if you put ice it will dilute the drink so it won't taste as good.....When using a shker, you have ice in the shaker to cool the drink but you don't serve the ice.

    If you are doing the martinis, you might want to use the Cheese Grater to grate some chocolate over the drinks. Have a good one!!! I'll have one for you!

    Good point, having the ingredients chilled before you start helps.

    That's what I did - put the liquors in the freezer before I made the drinks.
