A Chocolate Covered Strawberry Martini makes the perfect Valentine’s Day cocktail! This creamy drink has fresh strawberry puree, chocolate, and strawberry vodka, and a chocolate-covered strawberry garnishment. A festive, red sugar sprinkle rim tops off this dreamy delight with swirls of chocolate syrup.
Chocolate covered strawberries are mandatory around here for Valentine’s Day and luckily, they are super easy to make. First, make sure your strawberries are washed and dried well. Melt a bag of chocolate chips in a double boiler, transfer to a small bowl, dip ’em real good, twirl ’em, and let them cool off on wax paper. Store them in the fridge once cooled for a great Valentine’s treat. My family literally fights over them! That’s why it is absolutely necessary to hide a few for yourself. Beware, its quite the conundrum when you discover your kids have eaten the chocolate coating off of said strawberries while they are ‘safely’ cooling on the counter.
Have you seen all the flavors and brands of vodka available these days? I don’t want to know how many of them are in my cabinet(s)! I’m going to need a vodka cellar in my new house (if there is such a thing). My mother is literally triple wrapping my precious bottles for my upcoming move as I type. Yes, packing avoidance is a true disorder and I have it. Oh, lawd…my MOL just said she was going to drink the bottles that “don’t have much”. Hmmm…maybe she is on to something.
