This recipe calls for five ingredients. All five are easy to find and some you may already have at home!

  • Vodka- any plain kind that you prefer (we used Tito’s). You could also try using chocolate vodka for an even stronger chocolate flavor!
  • Amaretto liqueur- there are many varieties… Disaronno is our favorite
  • Cream of coconut- this can be found in a bottle or can at most grocery stores. If you can’t find it there try the liquor store.
  • Chocolate syrup- whichever is your favorite.
  • Half and Half- or half milk and half heavy cream. Use coconut milk to make this dairy free.

How to Make Almond Joy Martini Recipe

Combine all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake, shake, shake. Drizzle some chocolate into your martini glass. Then, pour the shaken cocktail mixture into the prepared martini glasses while straining out the ice. Serve right away and enjoy.

Cocktail Modifications

Give this delicious cocktail a special twist by adding raspberry puree! Start with a 1/2 shot worth of puree and shake it in. Add more if desired for a stronger flavor.

Try adding a little coconut rum in place of the vodka for a stronger coconut flavor!

Dip the rim of the glass in chocolate syrup and then in toasted coconut for another garnish idea.
