Chocolate Orange Martini

This martini is crafted to taste like the popular candy fruit, Terry's Chocolate Orange. It's a fine likeness, me thinks. ;)

One could get away with just Cointreau and Dark Godiva, but I prefer to use those for flavor and less expensive liqueurs for bulk. So in this case orange vodka and Creme de Cocao are used to maintain the same taste without draining the premium bottles as quickly.
  • 2 oz Dark Creme de Cocao
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 2 oz Mandarin Absolut Vodka
  • 1 oz Godiva Chocolate Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz Kahlua
  • an Orange
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Shake the ingredients with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Strain into the glass and garnish with an orange peel spiral.
