Ultimate Creamy Chocolate Martini With Baileys FAQs
What kind of Baileys is vegan-friendly?
Baileys has come out with a vegan-friendly version of their traditional Irish cream liqueur. It's called Baileys Almande Almondmilk liqueur. The Almande is so good! On top of being vegan-friendly, it is also gluten-free too!
How do I know when my martini is chilled enough to serve?
You need to shake your cocktail shaker long enough that you can see frost forming on the shaker. That is when you will know that the creamy chocolate martini is chilled enough to serve.
Could I use chocolate syrup for the garnish of the martinis instead of shaved chocolate pieces?
Yes! A vegan chocolate syrup would make a great alternative to chocolate shavings atop your martini. If you want to make the martini glass even prettier, you can drizzle some chocolate syrup inside the glass before adding the drink to it.
Could I add a whipped cream topping to the top of my martini?
Of course, you can! In fact, that sounds delicious! There are vegan store-bought coconut whipped cream options out there, but if you want to make your own, it is super simple! Get a good quality coconut and chill it in the refrigerator overnight. Scoop it into a bowl then whip it with a hand or stand mixer until it starts to form peaks. Once peaks are formed it's ready to serve!
Is this chocolate martini gluten-free?
It will depend on the type of chocolate liquor that you use. Some chocolate liqueurs do have ingredients that contain gluten. Make sure to read all labels and ingredients if you have a gluten allergy.
