It’s festive enough for the holidays and simple enough for an after-dinner sipper. So go on and treat yourself to a white chocolate martini tonight!

White Chocolate Martini 

Martini, chocolatini – call it whatever you want. This cocktail gives the word ‘indulgent’ a whole new meaning.

It’s like a liquid dessert in a glass! 

Sweet, velvety, and rich with white chocolate, it offers a luscious experience sip after sip. 

It features white chocolate liqueur, vanilla vodka, white crème de cacao, and cream, all shaken to perfection.

Dress it up with chocolate shavings or rim the glass with crushed candy canes if you like.

Either way, it’s the perfect drink when you need something a little boozy and sweet.

Ingredients 

Believe it or not, you only need five ingredients, a garnish and a martini glass to make this creamy cocktail. 

You’ll find the full list with amounts at the bottom of the post. But here’s a quick rundown:

  • White Chocolate Liqueur: There are a few good options here, but I love Godiva! This premium liqueur elevates this drink like no other.
  • Vanilla Vodka: The hint of vanilla makes it extra decadent. Regular vodka will work, too, though.
  • Heavy Cream: For the luscious, silky smooth consistency.
  • White Crème De Cacao: The sweeter chocolate flavor and a hint of vanilla make it taste like dessert.
  • Vanilla Extract: For a richer taste. You only need a splash.
  • White Chocolate Shavings: The perfect touch to top it off! Add it to the rim or sprinkle it on top.

What Is White Chocolate Liqueur?

White chocolate liqueur is a low-alcohol spirit that’s creamy and sweet. 

The flavor profile and exact ingredients vary by brand. But it typically contains an alcoholic base with white chocolate and cream.

Tips and Tricks

Looking for some pro tips and tricks to up your cocktail game? Here are some ways to elevate your white chocolate martini: 

  • Chill the martini glass. Freeze it for an hour to keep the cocktail cold longer. Or, fill it with ice water while you prepare the drink and dump it out before serving.
  • Shake and strain with a mason jar and a lid. If you don’t own a cocktail shaker, this works in a pinch. 
  • Match the garnish with the season. Crushed candy canes, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, cocoa powder, fresh fruit – use anything you fancy.
  • Use whole-fat milk or half-n-half. Both work as a substitute for heavy cream.
  • Make your own vanilla vodka. Add sliced vanilla beans and decent vodka to a jar and let it sit for a week or two.
  • Adjust the measurements to taste. Some may prefer a stronger hint of vanilla or a creamier texture. Experiment to find your perfect balance!

Variations 

Like a standard martini, there are many variations to this drink.

Here are some recommendations you should try:

Use different vodka flavors. Birthday cake, raspberry, whipped cream – they all add their own touch. Just make sure the flavor works with white chocolate.

Add a splash of peppermint schnapps. The combo of white chocolate and mint tastes like Christmas.

Add caramel. Drizzle caramel into the glass before adding the drink.

Make it a Godiva chocolate martini. This one features Godiva chocolate liqueur, Bailey’s, and vodka.
