If you are hosting a cocktail party and looking for an elegant, decadent drink to serve, chocolate vodka martinis could be just the ticket. While numerous varieties of chocolate martinis exist, the basic recipe remains the same.

Garnish the martini with a stick of chocolate candy or a cherry, if desired.
