Cocktail shaker - if you don't have one, a mason jar with its lid works!
Shimmer Sugar or Edible Glitter - I used both in white for a pretty, sparkly garnished rim.
Key Ingredients for a White Chocolate Martini
Full ingredients, measurements, and instructions are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post.
Vanilla Vodka - vanilla flavored vodka keeps the flavor well-rounded in the dessert arena, you can tell the difference without it.
Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur - this white chocolate liquor is really rich and decadent, made with both white chocolate and cream.
Heavy Cream - the heavy cream adds extra creaminess and mellows out the bite of the vodka, making it an easy to sip cocktail
White Crème de Cacao - this is the clear version, which you can easily find at your local liquor store. It has a smooth milk chocolate flavor that cannot be missed here.
Rim the martini glasses with simple syrup (or honey or a little maple syrup if you don't have simple syrup), then coat the rim of the glass with shimmering sugar and edible glitter.
Shake all of the martini ingredients in the cocktail shaker with a handful of ice until the shaker is cold, then pour the cocktail into your prepared glasses.
Top with a light dusting of cocoa powder and serve.
For a beautiful presentation, top with dark chocolate shavings!
For the holiday season, garnish with mini candy canes, snowflake sprinkles, or holiday-themed shimmering sugar.
