How to drizzle a martini glass

Glass decoration turns an ordinary cocktail into a festive holiday presentation. It sets a nice mood for your party guests, and turns an everyday dinner into a romantic evening for two.

Since St. Patrick’s day is also associated with chocolate, drizzling the martini glass for your cocktail with melted chocolate makes perfect sense.

This technique is quite simple. The only ingredient needed is some chocolate syrup – you can melt some chocolate in the microwave or buy a bottled chocolate syrup. The only other thing required is a martini glass.

What spirits are used for this St. Patricks Day martini?

This drink is powerful. It has no soda or juice – it has just different spirits combined for one great taste.

The spirit mixture is this:

Why use a cocktail shaker for the International Incident Martini?

I used a cocktail shaker to make my Bailey’s martini recipe.Hands and a cocktail shaker

The main reason to use a cocktail shaker in any drinks is to completely combine all of the drink’s ingredients in order to create a single, beautiful blend of flavor.

If you notice, many cocktail recipes recommend using this technique.

Cocktail shakers also get very cold when you shake them since they are metal. This makes the drink colder than one shaken in a normal jar.

This is a great benefit for drinks that aren’t served over ice.

Time to make this Frangelico cocktail

Place some ice in a cocktail shaker and add your spirits. Shake until the alcohol is well combined.Bailey's martini with a chocolate drizzled glass on a green napkin with shamrock and rainbow pieces.

Add some grated chocolate to your Frangelico cocktail

For a bit of extra flavor, use a microplane grate to grate in some dark chocolate.

This not only adds some extra color to your amaretto and Bailey’s drink, but also adds a burst of chocolate flavor to the cocktail, too.
