Even though National Martini Day is a few months away, we figured it’s always a good time to celebrate one of our favorite go-to cocktails: the chocolate martini. Leave your hot chocolate recipe at the door because this chocolatey goodness will warm up your soul as you sip through vanilla vodka, Baileys and chocolate ganache while it swims in swirls of chocolate syrup. This drink deserves a round of applause — or another round in general. But whatever you choose to do, make sure you enjoy it with a pink straw because it will make it taste even better. We promise.
