If you're thinking Valentines and sweets, then it's hard to go past chocolate and berries - so I've designed this cocktail to reflect that. I've used Raspberry Vodka and White Creme de Cacao with Vanilla Vodka to round out the flavour.
The powdered raspberries have returned and this time I'm using them to edge the glass, much like you'd use salt with a margarita.
1 part Vanilla Vodka
1 part White Creme de Cacao
raspberry powder, for decoration
Prepare the glass:
Moisten the rim of a martini glass with lemon juice and then dunk into the raspberry powder - gently twisting the glass to form the crusted edge.
Make the martini:
Generously fill a tall glass with ice.
Pour in the vodkas and the creme de cocoa - using a long spoon, stir well.
Carefully strain into the prepared glass and serve.
