THE CHOCOLATE (Birthday!) CAKE MARTINI
And Recipe for Chocolate Cake Vodka
Because everyone should have chocolate on their birthday!
Ingredients: Chocolate Cake Vodka*, Godiva Chocolate Liqueur, Chocolate Milk, Chocolate Chips
Since I had recently been making several versions of Chocolate Vodka and Chocolate Liqueurs, I decided it might be fun to try some of the Pinnacle Cake Vodka they so kindly sent me to review in place of a plain vodka and make Chocolate Cake Vodka.
This was perfect because my birthday was coming up in a few weeks and I just had enough time for the chocolate to infuse in the booze and make myself a Chocolate Birthday Cake Martini!
The Pinnacle Cake Vodka tastes and smells just like yellow cake batter/yellow cake so if I could get chocolate into that I was in good shape.
I simply decided to use one of the Chocolate Candy Bar techniques for creating my Chocolate Cake Vodka using cake vodka in place of plain vodka!
The recipe and steps are below.
As you can see, I got my Chocolate Cake Vodka in time for my Chocolate Cake Vodka Martini in time to celebrate my ?th birthday. (No, I'm not telling you which one, snoopy.) And a good time was had by me!
You'll see that I had a candle attached to my martini glass. That was a simple enough procedure, I took chocolate chips, melted them in the microwave for about a minute and a half, poured a little into a plate to rim the glass and the rest into a star shaped candy mold. I stuck the candle into the chocolate star and let that cool in the fridge along with the rimmed glass. Then I melted a bit more chocolate and used that as the "glue" to stick the star to the glass rim!
HOW TO MAKE CHOCOLATE CAKE LIQUEUR
Take 12 ounces of very dark, bittersweet chocolate and chop up into small pieces with a knife. The darker and less sweet chocolate is better because Cake Vodka has enough sweetness on it's on.
Put the chopped chocolate into a blender with a 750 milliliter bottle of cake vodka and rough blend this. Don't get it too blended or you'll end up with a syrup.
Pour this all into a quart glass jar that has a sealable lid and place in the refrigerator for two weeks or up to a month. Shake at least once a day.
When your cake vodka has absorbed enough of the chocolate flavor for you, strain it first through a large metal strainer and then, little by little, through a coffee filter lined strainer. Use a new coffee filter each time you fill the strainer and be patient as this takes time. The coffee filter is straining out all the solids which can make your liqueur grainy.
Once your Chocolate Cake Liqueur is completely strained you can pour it into a decorative bottle, label it and enjoy or share!
Happy Birthday to me,
Happy Birthday to you,
There's only one candle
so you won't feel blue!
