Luck o' the Irish martini

Are you sick of throwing back Irish Car Bombs, pints of Guiness, or shots of Jameson on St. Patty's Day? Well I've got just the fancy cocktail that'll make your friends green with envy, and it's basically dessert too, so win-win! 

A few weeks back, I was contacted by Chila 'Orchata, and challenged to come up with a St. Patrick's day beverage featuring their delicious cinnamon cream rum. Immediately, I knew it had to be green, and since I'm a lover of any mint and chocolate combination, I decided a dessert martini was the way to go! Also, since you never know how the weather will be in mid-March, I whipped up an 'Orchata Hot Toddy too! 

Get the recipes for both cocktails below.

Luck o' the Irish Martini

1 oreo cookie, crumbled
Chocolate Sauce
3 oz. Chila 'Orchata
1 oz. Creme de Menthe

Dip a chilled martini glass into sugar water and then into the crumbled cookie mixture to coat rim. Drizzle chocolate sauce inside of the glass. 

Pour Chila 'Orchata and creme de menthe into a shaker filled with ice, then pour into chilled martini glass. Garnish with a mint sprig.

'Orchata Hot Toddy

3 oz. Chila 'Orchata
1 oz. Irish Whiskey
Ground nutmeg

Warm the Chila 'Orchata over the stove or in the microwave. Add one ounce of your favorite Irish Whiskey, sprinkle with nutmeg and enjoy! 

Complimentary samples of the product were provided by Chila 'Orchata, all opinions and recipes are my own.
