Frangelico Hazelnut Martini
PUBLISHED ON: 06.27.2010
This martini is a wonderful way to showcase Frangelico Liquer. A squeeze of lime juice opens up the flavor and softens the sweetness on the palate. This is a really nice martini that is best served following dinner and before dessert.
Frangelico Hazelnut Martini
2 ounces Frangelico
2 ounces good quality vodka
1 squeeze of Fresh Lime Juice
Good quality bar chocolate (e.g. Lindt)
Grate chocolate into a fine dust over a small plate. Wet the rim of a chilled martini glass with Frangelico, and dip the glass into the chocolate.
In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the Frangelico, vodka and lime juice. Shake vigorously and pour into the chocolate rimmed martini glass.
I've never had Frangelico but I'm sure it's delicious and I do love a good martini. If it's hazelnut flavored, I can't believe I haven't had it before. Also, rimming the glass with chocolate sounds to-die for!
Gosh, looks and sounds magnificent.Awesome click ♥
You just brought a martini up a notch; great photo.Rita
It looks and sounds delicious and I love that chocolate rim!
I love Frangelico!! Beautiful cocktail!!
A martini served with chocolate-rimmed glass…wow…that sounds terrific!
Baileys Irish cream and Hazelnut liquor makes a great drink called a Nutty Irishman…
Wow, what a great idea for a martini. Lime and chocolate are flavors that I would not think to put in the same glass.
I'll have two more of the same!
Oh Buff I love nutty Irishman, married one and the drink is great! Oh Velva you and Fred sure know how to live it up!

This looks like heaven in a glass! My sister is visiting – looks like we're having these on the porch tomorrow night!
Great looking cocktail!
This sounds delicious. Love the chocolate on the rim.
I'm going to show this to my husband. He is the marini maker of the family.

A stunning cocktail!!Yummmmmmm,…!!!
Sounds good. I'll have to share this one with my sister. She said she had to buy a huge bottle of Frangelico to get a small amount to make in a dessert.

This looks like heaven. I totally need to make fun martinis on random nights instead of waiting for super special occasions :)Sues
Hmmmm – can I have one for happy hour tonight?
What a beautiful martini! I love the chocolate on the rim.

That's beautiful. The lime sounds intriguing–an unexpected flavor helping to round out the sweet ingredients.
This martini and I have a date with destiny. Friday night. After my first week of work.Looks fantastic.
This is just gorgeous. I am such a martini fan. My cocktail of choice every time.
This martini looks fab! Love the chocolate on the rim. Beautiful!
HiFirst time in your blog.Very lovely and unique recipes.Love to follow you
Velva darling, every time I come to your blog and see a cocktail (in particular) I feel we are sooo simpatico! I, too use citrus with Frangelico, it just brings out the vanilla essence of the liqueur. I used to serve it simply over rocks with soda and a lemon twist but why not add a splash of vanilla vodka to help it along? When in Miami, you must call me for a cocktail (or two!) Hope you are enjoying your summer dear! x
Another lovely cocktail, Velva! You have the best drink recipes. I adore Frangelico! This looks soooo good.

I bet that if you had either the time or the inclination to look back, you'd find that I comment most often on your cocktails. Just sayin.Another winner!
This martini looks amazing. Thanks for visiting my site. Cycling in France Is just the best. I have done a lot of cycling in my life, but I enjoy it here more than anywhere. Trouble is as I get older the trips get shorter. I used to think nothing of doing 80 to 100 kms in a day now 25 to 30 is about it. Cheers. Diane

You are a master mixologist. I never thought to grate chocolate and use with a hazelnut lime blend. Looks good!

now doesn't that look so very tasty! I'm glad you used vodka in it, my favorite!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love anything on toast. My new favorite is sardine in olive oil on toast with tomatoes and avocado. Simple, fast, fresh.
