What can I say more, you just have to try the Godiva Chocolate Martini with coconut rum and you will be simply amazed of its taste. It was a surprise from my beloved girlfriend and of course I wanted to share it with you.
For 1 person, here is the recipe for Godiva chocolate Martini with coconut rum: ½ oz Godiva chocolate liqueur, ¼ Malibu coconut rum, ½ Godiva white chocolate liqueur, ½ oz crème de cacao, ½ oz Vodka and 1 oz half and half (milk and cream in equal parts).
Pour all the ingredients in a shaker, add ice, mix them and serve into a cold cocktail glass. Simply delicious! But what about Godiva chocolate Martini calories, you might ask? WHO CARES when it is so damn tasty???
Enjoy this Godiva and Malibu rum cocktail, it was a quick one but really wanted to share with you fast!
Mojito with Malibu recipe is a delicious Cuban cocktail recipe I always serve my friends with when we are on a cocktails’ day. It is not so difficult to create it, below I will write the recipe for 4 persons serving.
First, we need 4 oz Malibu coconut rum, 4 oz club soda, mint (16 leaves), 4 sugar tablespoons and lime. All will be served in a highball glass. Crush the mint leaves inside each four glasses with a fork, no need to do this a lot while the flavor is released quite fast. Second, add the lime juice (you must also prepare some lime wedges, for garnishing) and the sugar and mix the ingredients. Now comes the freezing part! Add ice, but do not fill the glass; add 1 oz Malibu coconut rum in each glass and mix again.
Pour the club soda, stir well with a straw, garnish with the lime wedges I told you above and use some mint leaves as well. If you would like to make it in the traditional way, use spearmint instead of mint, I think it’s not so hard to find in local herbs shops.
This would be a great cocktail to serve with your friends, exactly like Ernest Hemingway was thinking, while Mojito was his favorite drink and he is one of my favorite writers.
Of course different cultures made their own Mojito variation, for example Mexican Mojito uses tequila instead of rum, have not tried it yet but it definitely sounds interesting. Also, it would be great to replace the sugar with brown sugar syrup and make a Dirty Mojito, but for now we’ll stick with the traditional Mojito with Malibu rum recipe. Maybe later….
Rum Martini is one of the most enjoyable cocktails I’ve ever had, however the past “gin and vermouth” mix is nothing more than an “oldies but goodies”. But as our blog is made around Malibu rum drinks, let’s try to sketch a recipe for Rum Martini, a variation made with Malibu rum. Also, let’s add more recipes for people to choose the one that fancy their tastes better, but all of these will have one thing in common: the Rum Martini cocktail should be well chilled before drinking it, as well as the glass in which you will serve the drink.
The easiest and oldest recipe is, as I was saying, 1 ½ oz rum and 1 ½ tsp dry vermouth. Fill have of a mixing glass with ice cubes, stir and pour into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive and serve cold.
The second Rum Martini recipe contains this time some orange bitters. 2 oz Malibu rum, ½ oz dry vermouth and 2 dashes orange bitters. Chill, pour into a chilled glass and serve garnished with an olive.
Here comes my favorite, the Caribbean Martini! This requires a little more preparation while you should get a cherry and moisten the glass’ edge, yummy! Use 1 oz vodka, 1 oz Malibu coconut rum, pineapple juice and mango puree. Blend the mix with ice, pour in the Martini glass moisten with the cherry, garnish it with a cherry and enjoy!
Our fourth Rum Martini cocktail comes under Almond Joy name, or at least I consider the Almond Joy a Martini, am I wrong? Use 3 oz Malibu rum, 1.5oz amaretto, 1oz kahlua ,1 oz chocolate liqueur and throw away some vodka above. Mix all the ingredients into a shaker with ice, stir into glasses and garnish with some nice chocolate syrup.
There are a few more Rum Martini recipes that I enjoy, made with Malibu coconut rum, however these four I consider the best a mouth can taste. Enjoy responsible, right?
