During a recent video shoot for a client we picked up a large container of chocolate covered almonds to share on the set. They went well with our morning coffee, the croissants during the mid-morning break, a lunch dessert, and well… they were gone before the day was over. These little chocolaty nutty morsels of yumminess were so good that they were the perfect foundation for a cocktail. Hence, the Chocolate Almond Martini was born. It's a very strong drink, so we'd suggest a small, shot-size serving (cut all the measurements in half) to begin, unless you're like us and believe that nothing could ever be too strong for you (we love you people). You may also love this recipe in a pippin' hot cup of coffee. Enjoy!
