May 15 (tomorrow) is National Chocolate Chip Day, which gives me an excuse to eat too many chocolate chip cookies.

But I'm going to cheat. I'm going to celebrate one day early, and instead of pairing the cookies with milk, I'm going to up the chocolate ante with a chocolate martini (hey, it is Friday, ladies).

Chocolate chip cookies + chocolate martini = chocoheaven.

So for all you chocoholics out there:



  •     2 ounces vanilla vodka
  •     1/2 ounce creme de cacao
  •     5 to 6 cubes of ice
  •     Twist of orange peel
  •     Cocoa powder
  •     Chocolate syrup

Mixing instructions:

Pour vodka and creme de cacao into a shaker with ice cubes. Rub a slice of orange peel around the rim of a cocktail glass and dip glass into cocoa powder. Stream chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass. Strain liquid and garnish with orange peel.

Happy Friday!
