Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Martini


Who wouldn’t love a chocolate-covered strawberry martini? This decadent after-dinner drink is a luscious substitute for dessert, and a perfect Valentine’s Day drink.

It’s also a perfect way to utilize the strawberries that are in season in Florida from mid-December through early April. (Here’s a guide on where to pick your own!)

Kiddos want their own version? Substitute chocolate milk for the chocolate vodka and omit the Grand Marnier for a zero-proof version that’s just as delicious.

Looking for something a bit lighter? Our go-to is this one (add a shot of vodka if you’d like!)

For the garnish, it’s very simple to make your own chocolate-covered strawberries. You can buy dipping chocolate at the grocery store.
