Ah, Valentine’s Day! Love is in the air and you are going out with your significant other for a holiday drink. Wait, you don’t know where to start? Well come by each day leading up to the Day of Love for a new drink recipe each day including feedback from our tasting team.

For each drink, we rated the drink on its appearance or first impression, smell, taste and whether or not it was Valentine’s Day material.

Rank: Fourth Place

Rating: 2.5/5 hearts



- 2 teapsoons of chocolate syrup

- ice

- 1/2 cup of vodka

-1 fuild ounce of chocolate liqueur

-1 fuild ounce of white creme de cacao

- 2 maraschino cherries

A chocolaty mess of sorts, the “Chocolate Martini” hits a middle ground between strong and tasty. Almost muddy in color, the drink lacks a little of the Valentine’s Day flair. A mix of a hard liquor burn with a sweet chocolate taste, it’s a good combo for those that want to fully enjoy chocolate on V-day.
