Frangelico Hazelnut Martini

This martini is a wonderful way to showcase Frangelico Liquer.   A squeeze of lime juice opens up the flavor and softens the sweetness on the palate.  This is a really nice martini that is best served following dinner and before dessert.

Frangelico Hazelnut Martini
2 ounces Frangelico
2 ounces good quality vodka
1 squeeze of  Fresh Lime Juice
Good quality bar chocolate (e.g. Lindt)
Grate chocolate into a fine dust over a small plate.  Wet the rim of a chilled martini glass with Frangelico, and dip the glass into the chocolate.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the Frangelico, vodka and lime juice.  Shake vigorously and pour into the chocolate rimmed martini glass.

  1. I've never had Frangelico but I'm sure it's delicious and I do love a good martini. If it's hazelnut flavored, I can't believe I haven't had it before. Also, rimming the glass with chocolate sounds to-die for!


  2. This looks like heaven in a glass! My sister is visiting – looks like we're having these on the porch tomorrow night!


  3. Sounds good. I'll have to share this one with my sister. She said she had to buy a huge bottle of Frangelico to get a small amount to make in a dessert.


  4. Velva darling, every time I come to your blog and see a cocktail (in particular) I feel we are sooo simpatico! I, too use citrus with Frangelico, it just brings out the vanilla essence of the liqueur. I used to serve it simply over rocks with soda and a lemon twist but why not add a splash of vanilla vodka to help it along? When in Miami, you must call me for a cocktail (or two!) Hope you are enjoying your summer dear! x


  5. This martini looks amazing. Thanks for visiting my site. Cycling in France Is just the best. I have done a lot of cycling in my life, but I enjoy it here more than anywhere. Trouble is as I get older the trips get shorter. I used to think nothing of doing 80 to 100 kms in a day now 25 to 30 is about it. Cheers. Diane


  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love anything on toast. My new favorite is sardine in olive oil on toast with tomatoes and avocado. Simple, fast, fresh.
