How To Make Almond Joy and Milky Way Martinis

The Martini is one of the most popular cocktails served at parties. It is usually garnished with an olive and made with vermouth and gin. Vermouth is a wine that can be dry, unsweetened or sweetened and is flavored with herbs and spices. Gin is a spirit that can be distilled or compound. Distilled gin is produced by redistilling botanicals like juniper berries with neutral spirits of agricultural origin. Compound gin is produced by adding flavors to neutral spirits using natural flavorings, which does not include re-distilling. Neutral spirits are distilled from cereal grains. It is a flammable and clear liquid which is high in ethanol. If you have a sweet tooth, you can add your favorite chocolate candy bar to your martini. Almond Joy and Milky Way are two of the chocolate candy bars that you can use. Almond Joy is a Hershey’s candy bar which has a milk chocolate coating on the outside and coconut with almonds for the center filling. You can use this if you like a sweet and nutty taste. Milky Way is also covered with milk chocolate but has caramel and chocolate-malt nougat inside.

To make your Almond Joy martini, follow the steps below:

  • Fill your martini glass with ice and water to chill.
  • Mix Three Olives chocolate vodka, coconut rum and Frangelico with ice in an ice shaker. Frangelico is used in making different cocktail drinks. It has a flavor of hazelnut and herbs. Three Olives chocolate vodka should be 1 oz, coconut rum should be 1 oz. and Frangelico should also be 1 oz.
  • Mix the ingredients and ice until it becomes cold. Dump the water and ice from your martini glass so you can pour in your mixture. If you want to put a design to your martini glass, you can use chocolate syrup and toasted coconut. After dumping the water and ice from the martini glass, dip the martini glass rim into the chocolate syrup then dip into the toasted coconut. You need to let it chill in the refrigerator so that the chocolate syrup and toasted coconut will stick to the martini glass rim. Doing this is optional.
  • Get the martini glass and pour the cold mix into the glass.
  • Put the Almond Joy candy on a toothpick and use it as a garnish on your martini.
