Chocolate martinis are a delicious cocktail twist on a chocolate milkshake. In this chocolate caramel version, caramel vodka, Godiva liqueur, and vanilla ice cream combine for a decadent and creamy dessert cocktail.
The easiest way to dress up this delicious cocktail is to skip decorating the rim of the glass and instead pour chocolate syrup along the inside of the martini glass. Hold your martini glass by the stem at a 45 degree angle and swirl chocolate syrup onto the inside of the glass as you slowly twirl the stem.
We are skipping the Irish cream liquor in this easy chocolate martini recipe instead making it with creamy Godiva chocolate liqueur. It is a perfect sweet treat for special occasions like girl's night, Valentine’s Day or simply to cure your sweet tooth with dessert martinis.

How to Make a Chocolate Caramel Martini
Prepare your glass by drizzling the inside of it with chocolate syrup. Set aside.
Cover and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. (You want to break down the ice cream so it mixes into your cocktail.)
Garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder. You can even use whipped cream or chocolate shavings for an indulgent finishing touch.
Any dairy milk will work in this drink. (I would expect a nondairy milk like oat or almonds milk to be delicious, but haven’t tested it with that.) The higher the milk fat the creamier the cocktail, but stay away from half and half or heavy cream.
Drizzle the inside of your glass with caramel syrup if you don’t have any chocolate sauce on hand or prefer caramel over chocolate.
A sprinkle of cinnamon is a delicious alternative to cocoa powder on top of your cocktail.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you don’t have any caramel vodka on hand, use vanilla vodka or plain vodka. I love Stoli vanilla vodka in this recipe if I've run out of caramel vodka.
No. They are both chocolate flavored liqueurs, but the Godiva liqueur has cream in it whereas crème de cacao does not. This gives the Godiva liqueur a rich chocolate flavor.
Yes! Godiva chocolate liqueur does have alcohol in it. You can find it in your local liquor stores. If you want to reduce or remove that alcohol from this recipe, you can substitute chocolate milk in place of the creamy chocolate liqueur.
If you don’t have any coffee liqueur on hand, you can substitute strong cold brewed coffee in its place.
