Chocolate Coconut Martini

on February 27, 2011

This is not your usual chocolate martini. I saw it on Hungry Girl’s new television show on The Cooking Channel. We haven’t made it yet but plan to very soon. The only change I made to this was using regular Reddi-wip instead of fat-free Reddi-wip. This is a low-calorie martini as well. Using the Diet Hot Cocoa mix which has only 25 calories saves many calories. We use the Diet Swiss Miss Cocoa package. The sugar-free or no sugar added ones have more calories. I don’t understand it but as long as it tastes good who cares! Check out the original recipe on Hungry Girl’s TV show page.


INGREDIENTS:

1 packet Swiss Miss Diet hot cocoa mix

2 ounces hot water

2 ounces cold water

2 ounces sugar-free coconut syrup

2 shots (3 ounces) vodka

2 tablespoons whipped cream (Reddi-Wip)

unsweetened coconut shavings, for garnish

chocolate shavings, for garnish

DIRECTIONS:

1. In a large glass add dissolve the hot cocoa mix with the hot water. Add the cold water and stir.

2. Add coconut syrup, vodka and whipped cream. Stir well.

3. Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well!

4. Pour into chilled martini glasses. Top with coconut and chocolate shavings.

    I am so far behind – I didn’t even know Hungry Girl had her own t.v. show! I’ll have to DVR it – and that is quite possibly the best martini I’ve ever seen!
