Creme De cacao Vodka Martini

Creme De cacao Vodka Martini

This Creme De cacao Vodka Martini is ultimately creamy, subtly sweet, and darn right delicious. This is the easiest cocktail you could ever make. All you need are four ingredients. 

If you cannot get your hands on creme de cacao, you can make one at home, but I must warn you, you’ll need a lot of patience for it. 

 

HOW TO MAKE CREME DE CACAO AT HOME

 

CREME DE CACAO VODKA MARTINI

 

You’ll need:

 

  • 1 cup cacao nibs
  • 1-star anise (optional)
  • 10 cloves (optional)
  • 12 whole allspice berries (optional)
  • 1 vanilla bean. Halved and split
  • 750 ml vodka (50-151% proof)
  • 5 ¼ cups simple syrup. 

 

Place the first five ingredients in an airtight jar. Add the vodka, place the lid on, and shake the jar to combine. 

Allow to sit at room temperature for 5 to 8 days (The more the mixture rests, the more infused it’ll become).

After 5 to 8 days, the infusion will begin to darken. Strain the mix through a fine mesh into a bowl, then stir in the simple syrup. 

Pour the mixture into a bottle or jar using a funnel. Allow the infusion to sit for another day for the ingredients to fully incorporate. (Modified Info derived from coctaildudes)

 

The creme de cacao is now ready to use. 

 

Now that we’ve gotten one of the main ingredients out of the way let’s get right into making the cocktail. 

 

Creme De Cacao Vodka

 

There are two different ways of making this Creme De cacao Vodka Martini cocktail; you can either 

  1. Layer it up- Add the ingredients in layers, un-chilled. 
  2. Add most of the ingredients in a shaker with ice and strain into a cocktail glass top with cream.

 

I prefer method A, but my testers all loved method B because it was the perfect kick, and the vodka was smooth to digest. So, I’ll share both methods, feel free to mix it how you want, and most certainly, let me know in the comments which you prefer. 

 

How to make Creme De cacao Vodka Martini

 

You’ll need:

  • 0.5 oz Grenadine
  • 2.0 oz creme de cacao
  • 1.0 oz vodka (I used whipped vodka)
  • 1.0 oz chilled heavy cream (Frothy cream works best)
  • Shaved chocolate or dark cacao powder to garnish. 

 

Method A

 

To get the perfect layers, use a bartender spoon like this one here if you don’t have that on hand, feel free to use the back of a spoon as I did and wipe after each pour. 

 

In a short cocktail glass, gently pour the grenadine, followed by the creme de cacao and vodka. Any flavored vodka works fine. 

 

Finally, top the cocktail with chilled heavy cream for a rich texture. Slowly pour over the back of a spoon atop the other layers. Finish up with shaved chocolate or dark cacao powder. 

 

Do not stir. Enjoy each layer as you take a sip.

 

The chocolate and cream will hit your tongue first, don’t get too excited at this point because the party is about to start. Next comes the vodka, and the creme de cacao, followed by the sweet cherry taste of grenadine. It is going to get a little woozy, so please drink with absolute caution. 

 

Method B

 

Fill a shaker with Ice cubes. Add all ingredients except for the cream. 

 

Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with frothed cream. Garnish with shaved chocolate or cocoa powder. 

 

I hope you’ll give this smooth Creme De cacao Vodka Martini a try. If you are looking for something with more of a creamy libation, try this fan’s favorite S’moretini or this peach and mango daiquiri for a peachy temptation.

Ingredients

  • 0.5 ounce Grenadine
  • 2.0 ounces Creme de cacao
  • 1.0 Ounce Vodka (I used whipped vodka. Any dessert vodka is fine)
  • 1.0 Ounce Chilled heavy cream (Frothed cream works best)
  • Shaved chocolate or dark cacao powder to garnish. 

Instructions

Method A

  • Pour the first three ingredients in a martini or cocktail glass in the order listed above.
    Gently pour the heavy cream over the back of a spoon in a layer so that it floats atop other layers.
    *Frothed cream works best. See note below on how to froth the cream.
    Garnish with shaved chocolate or dust with cacao powder. Enjoy responsibly!



Method B

  • Fill a shaker with Ice cubes. Add all ingredients except for the cream. 

    Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Top with frothed cream. Garnish with shaved chocolate or cocoa powder. 



Notes

How to Froth cream at home

  • Using a shaker: Place the chilled cream in an airtight jar and shake vigorously for about 3 mins or until you reach the desired consistency. To cut downtime, place a shaker ball in the jar and shake for a minute.
  • Using a frothing wand: pour chilled cream in a cup or bowl, Immerse your frothing wand in the cream and turn on. Whisk, creating a gentle swirl of cream, until frothed to your desired consistency. Don't froth for long, you need the cream to still be slightly thick, yet liquidy. 
  • Using a blender: Pour the cream into a blender, cover and blend on high speed until slightly thick.
  • Using an immersion blender: Use the same process as steps 2. 
  • Using good old fashioned hand whisk. Pour the cream into a bowl and whisk until thick.
