White Chocolate Martini Tips and Tricks

Gather Your Ingredients

Four ingredients and an optional garnish will do the trick here. I use heavy cream but you can also opt for half and half.

I also like to use clear Creme de Cacao to get this gorgeous white color, but you can just as easily use the dark one. As far as the white chocolate liqueur, Godiva is my go-to!

Here’s everything you’ll need:

heavy cream, vodka, creme de cacau, white chocolate liqueur

Choosing Your Vodka

It’s best to use plain vodka for this dessert cocktail, as there is already tons of flavor.

However, if you have vanilla, caramel, or whipped cream flavored vodka on hand, those will work, too!

Green tip: Consider buying your alcohol in glass bottles to avoid extra plastic packaging and unnecessary microplastics, and always recycle your glass bottles!

Mix it Up!

Aside from your 4 ingredients, you’ll need a cocktail mixer or shaker, or even a mason jar with a strainer.

Use it to mix up your ingredients with your ice to really make sure it combines together and to make it ice cold. It’s the best way to seamlessly integrate your heavy cream with your alcohol.

I actually love using a mixing glass and a frother. The frother aerates the heavy cream and gives you a little bit of foam on top.

If you do decide to use a frother, add all of your ingredients to the mixing glass, froth it, and then add ice and mix.

Serve it Cold

This martini is served best cold. Rather than serving over ice, just mix it with ice so your White Chocolate Martini sips smooth.

You can also opt to stick your martini glass in the freezer for ten minutes before serving to keep it crisp and cold for longer.

Dusting the Rim

This is absolutely optional but recommended for the full experience.

In a shallow bowl, melt about 2 tablespoons of white chocolate chips in the microwave. Heat it on high in 30-second intervals, mixing in between until completely melted.

Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder to another shallow bowl to prepare for your cocoa powder rim.

Dunk the rim of the martini glass in the white chocolate and then the cocoa powder, leaving you with a dessert-worthy rim.
