Need a Dessert Cocktail Perfect for the Holidays? We Got You.

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.
