Nutella Martini Recipe..... need I say more?
I have been wanting to make a martini using Nutella for some time now. Here's what I came up with.
Swirl Nutella in a martini glass. Before adding ice, to a shaker add 1 Jigger Frangelico, 1 Jigger good quality vodka (I used Russian Standard), 1 Jigger Milk, 1 Jigger 1/2 & 1/2, and 1 heaping Tbl Nutella. Shake to blend. Add ice and shake again until very cold. Strain into a martini glass and indulge! Lovely for the end of the evening or a dessert party.
This recipe was posted on Thursday night and I am now typing on Saturday morning. I have never searched for, heard of, nor consumed a Nutella martini until this one, the one I made up. I decided to do a quick search of Nutella Martini last night and sure enough I found a few. The interesting thing is people are calling them Nutella Martini's (just like me) with a small hitch, Nutella is a trademarked name but none of the recipes I found actually contained Nutella. They used Frangelico and Godiva Chocolate. I think that is what trademark infringement is all about. Well I for one am supporting the real thing!
