Easter Martini

Although Easter has deep roots in Christian and Pagan beliefs, to me it still means lots of candy. Especially Cadbury's Creme Eggs which have always been my favorite Easter candy. So to encapsulate the chocolate and fondue loveliness, I've come up with a nice layered martini that tastes like and looks like the famous candy egg.
  • 3 oz Vanilla Vodka
  • 1 oz Creme De Cacao
  • 1/2 oz Frangelico
  • 2 oz Half & Half
  • 1 oz Orange Juice
  • Milk Chocolate Bar
  • Hershey's Syrup
Chill an up glass with crushed ice and water. Run a bead of Hershey's syrup around the glass edge and rim it with shaved chocolate. Put the rimmed glass and the shot of orange juice in the freezer. (Keeping the orange juice very cold helps to layer it later). Add the other four ingredients and shake with ice in a shaker until it sweats. Pour the chilled orange juice into the center of the chocolate rimmed glass. With the back of a bar spoon, carefully layer the cocktail by pouring the shaken ingredients over the orange juice. Garnish with a layer of shaved milk chocolate.
