Saturday Night Drink: New Years Coffee Chocolate Martini

 

Shavuah Tov & Happy Happy New Year!

2011 has only got a few hours left – Welcome to 2012 everyone!!

So even though we celebrated A New Year back in September – There is nothing like having a halfway point to reflect and reevaluate how our year is going and CELEBRATE!

As tradition has it – New Years Eve is all about watching that ball drop with a delicious toast in one hand  and, hopefully some loved ones nearby,  to raise your glass with and clink to good times in this new calendar year!

One of my favorite Alcoholic Beverages to imbibe in is  the Chocolate Martini – and because I am getting older and staying up to the wee hours is way in the past – adding a good shot of caffeine to my drink is the perfect idea for my New Years Eve Saturday Night Drink!

Chocolate and Coffee have a long standing relationship. In fact the Aztec Mayans, who were primarily the ones responsible for cultivating the cocoa bean that derives our chocolate, considered the cocoa bean when mashed into a spicy bitter drink after roasting “The divine drink, which builds up resistance and fights fatigue. A cup of this precious drink permits a man to walk for a whole day without food”

So pairing Chocolate & Coffee seems the only natural thing to do and in this delicious martini it gives this drink a delicious added punch . A perfect way  to start this new year off with a KICK!.

Happy New Year!!
