So… technically this isn't a martini (which is a mixture of gin or vodka with vermouth) but it does contain vodka and it IS served in a martini glass, so I hope that the purists will forgive me.
I thought for quite a while about how to get the chocolate flavor into the cocktail. The obvious option is unsweetened cocoa powder, but I find that it needs more than a few shakes in a cocktail shaker to dissolve it into cold liquid. I then considered a chocolate flavor of my favorite brand of sugar free sweetening syrup – Da Vinci. This has the happy benefit of also adding sweetness to the creamy cocktail. But unsurprisingly, the chocolate taste can seem rather artificial, so as well as the syrup I added some chocolate extract.
I've been using chocolate extract ever since I wrote the Low Carb Chocolate Recipes book – and it works really well for adding some deeper chocolate notes but not adding to the carb count.
Note – if you don't have the chocolate syrup you could also use a combination of my low carb simple syrup and the chocolate extract, or dissolve a little unsweetened cocoa powder into the simple syrup!
So enjoy this indulgent and luxurious martini cocktail – knowing that it is only *2g* total carbs!!!
How to Make a Low Carb Chocolate Cream Pie Martini
Mix together the following in a cocktail shaker: vodka, heavy cream, unsweetened almond milk, sugar free chocolate syrup, chocolate extract and ice.
Strain the mixture into a martini glass, then squirt some whipped cream over the top (omit this for a sugar free option, or whip your own cream without sugar. But the canned cream is the most convenient option – and always feels decadent for some reason).
