Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Chocolate Martini elegantly marries the crispness of vodka with the indulgent sweetness of coffee liqueur and hints of nuanced fragrances from white vermouth, crafting a sophisticated after-dinner drink that leans heavily into its dessert-like allure. Its chocolate rim adds a tactile pleasure that elevates the sip, cleverly echoing the cocoa undertones in coffee liqueur, making each taste both a visual and palatable feast that is as much a treat to the eyes as it is to the taste buds.
