Chocolate Peppermint Martini

Creamy and full of chocolate flavor, this hedonistic chocolate peppermint martini cocktail finishes with a cool, minty sensation reminiscent of an after dinner mint. An after dinner mint that's been imbued with vodka, that is.  Love it? Be sure to give it a star rating!
