The muddy white chocolate martini recipe is fun and delicious! It’s decadent without being over the top!
This white chocolate martini is such a tasty drink. You’re probably wondering what makes it muddy. I dribbled Nutella along the sides of the glass. You can see that the liquid makes the Nutella run a little, hence the muddy. By the end of the drink, it doesn’t exactly turn brown but you get a nice color and flavor mixed in there.
It’s super easy to make and it looks pretty cool when you serve it at a party. People usually say, “Cool,” without even asking me what it is. Put some dribbles in a glass, dump some liquid in there and people will love it just because of the way it looks.
Thankfully, it tastes scrummynumscious as well!
On to the recipe:
First off, I grab my glassware essentials: shaker, jigger, martini glass and ice (which technically isn’t glass but it looks like it, sort of.) 🙂
Here’s another view of the glassware. This one is saying, ‘what are you waiting for? Fill me up already!’
I gather the booze that goes in this delish drink!
Here they are:
The White Chocolate Martini Ingredients and the Mixing
Easy peasy! All the booze that is in this martini is in equal parts: vodka, white chocolate liqueur and RumChata. Oh, and dribbles of watered down Nutella.
People invariably want more than one of these drinks and since they are booze, booze and more booze, I only make a 3 ounce drink. It doesn’t fill up the martini glass, so I do put ice in with it. The ice does two things: 1.) it raises the level of liquid in the glass and 2.) it waters it down a little, which isn’t a bad thing in this case because, as I’ve stated, peeps tend to have more than one of these AND they drink them fast because they taste so good.
See? I’m trying to be responsible.
The next thing that I do is prepare the martini glasses. I take some Nutella and add about a half teaspoon into a little glass dish along with a small amount of water. I pop it into the microwave for 10 seconds to see if it is easy to work with. I quickly take a spoon and dribble the Nutella into the martini glass. I try to make it look interesting. The Nutella does solidify rather quickly so if it needs more water, add it.
Here’s a look at how I did it.
This is the glass with all the Nutella dribbles in it!
As you can see, I like a lot of Nutella. 🙂 Use as much or as little as you like. There are no rules regarding this!
Now to the good stuff:
I fill the shaker halfway with ice and start with the vodka. I don’t always use the brand Grey Goose, but it is my preferred brand at the moment.
I measure out one ounce of vodka.
Into the shaker it goes.
Next, I measure out one ounce of RumChata.
If you have never had RumChata, it’s a very interesting liqueur. It is a blend of rums, cream and spices. I usually make people sip a little bit just to let them taste it. I haven’t had one single person say, “Nope, don’t like it.” If you haven’t tried it, I’d suggest you do.
Once I had discovered RumChata, I’ve been preparing it different ways. Among people’s favorites are shooters with amaretto. But I digress.
Into the shaker the RumChata goes!
Next up is Godiva’s white chocolate liqueur.
I measure out one ounce and pour it into the shaker.
I grab the prepared martini glass, cap the shaker and start shaking the ingredients all together, making them nice and chilled!
Time to pour.
The next photo shows the drink poured, without the ice added. See how it falls short?
People see that and think, “Umm, hello? Where’s the rest of my drink?”
Now, for the drink with the ice.
Happy guests mean happy Lainey and Christopher!
Here’s an aerial view! See the little swirls of Nutella? 🙂 Oh, Yeah!!
