Saddle up to the home bar and have a berry good warm cocktail, or two, won’t you?
These raspberry and chocolate martinis are a hot toddy recipe that mixes dark chocolate and raspberry liqueurs with real milk and chocolate for a drink for the grown-ups after the kids go to bed. Just make sure the bartender garnishes the glasses with chocolate. These martinis aren’t shaken but stirred and heated in a small saucepan. They’re best when made with 2% or whole. And you can have them in a mug if you don’t want to deal with balancing a martini glass. In either case, top them with raspberry skewers—they taste great dipped in the chocolate—and toast to the New Year, good friends or just to tasty homemade hot chocolate drinks.
