Ghirardelli Chocolate Martini Recipe

I was lucky enough to try out the Ghirardelli Chocolate Flavored Sauce the other day and it is fantastic! We used it on ice cream and they suggest that you use it in coffee. But the best suggestion that I have seen is to make a chocolate martini with it. Check out this picture and tell me you are not drooling!

The chocolate martini recipe is fairly simple–vodka, hazelnut liqueur, and raspberry liqueur. What really make it something special for chocolate lovers is the drizzle of chocolate sauce that coats the inside of the glass.

Have you tried this recipe? Do you have a favorite chocolate martini that you make yourself or get at a particular restaurant?
