The boozily ambitious minds at Supercall World HQ created this version of the classic ’90s dessert cocktail, determined to take it out of the realm of the sickly-sweet and into drier, and, dare we say it, more sophisticated territory. They succeeded—and then some—producing a knockout variation that combines sweet, bitter, and spicy, along with a welcome fruit accent thanks to a splash of raspberry liqueur.
Is it technically a Martini? Well, no, it’s not—and neither was the original (nor any of the many other ‘alternative’ Martinis in existence, but that’s a story for another article). Is it an amazing dessert cocktail that pairs beautifully with chocolate cake (or pumpkin pie, or any number of sweet treats)? Oh, yes. Yes it is.
*Note: This recipe calls for homemade chocolate liqueur, which is spectacular and unexpectedly easy to make (just follow the link below), but you can of course purchase it instead.
