This chocolate martini has muddled strawberry, organic cocoa and vodka. It’s super easy to make and very flavorful!
We have a new favorite drink after sipping a fruity, chocolate martini on a sunny day. We first has this cocktail at a restaurant and wanted to create our own. It has strawberries and vodka and is made with real cacao powder. Above all, its a great option for a healthier cocktail.
More About Cacao Powder
Cacao powder is full of antioxidants, which makes this chocolatey libation packed with health benefits! Similar, to cocoa powder, cacao powder comes from the same bean, however it’s processed differently. You can read more about that here.
In addition to cacao powder, we also used organic vodka, just a little organic milk and fresh organic muddled strawberries.

Next, add all of the ingredients into the shaker with ice and shake for 30 seconds.

Martini made with gin or vodka?
Traditionally, martinis are made with gin. However, many people prefer vodka, which has a less herbaceous taste than gin. In short, this is up to you and your preference!
Shake or Stir?
Mixologists typically stir cocktails and martinis. Stirring gently and smoothly blends the ingredients. However, shaking a martini can help circulate the ingredients and make them icy cold. It’s really a matter of customer preference.
In conclusion, if you’re anything like James Bond, you’ll want your martini shaken, not stirred. The main thing is getting the martini very cold, it makes it more enjoyable to sip. As a result, we like shaken martinis the best.
