A CREAMY MARTINI

Martinis are simple to whip up and are so cool and delicious; especially when you play around with the flavors like this one! Inspired by my favorite ice cream flavor, this Cherry Garcia Martini Recipe is rich in flavor. The martini glass is swirled with chocolate syrup and the rim is topped with crushed Oreo cookies. With this combination of cherry and Irish cream in the drink, you really can’t go wrong when it comes to this unique cocktail recipe.

TIPS AND TRICKS ON HOW TO MAKE A CHERRY GARCIA MARTINI:

  • This recipe uses White Chocolate Irish Cream, if you’re in a pinch you can use regular Irish Cream but it will give more of a coffee flavor than a chocolate flavor.
  • You can use any type of cherry rum that you like, we use Cruzan.
  • Drizzling the chocolate inside the martini glass is completely optional but we love it for flavor and aesthetics.
  • The rim is lined with crushed Oreos but any chocolate cookie will essentially do.
  • Grenadine is used for this but if you cannot find grenadine you can substitute with cranberry juice cocktail or cocktail cherry juice.
  • This recipe can easily be doubled as the recipe below makes one drink.
