Now Serving The Chocolate Poodle

Welcome to our imaginary cocktail bar. The establishment might be imaginary, but the drink is real. 

About four years ago, I became interested in mixing cocktails. I also found this wonderful Poodle Martini Bar poster. Along with some vintage Poodle barware that I had already collected, I was inspired to create cocktails not just named after Poodles, but dogs in general.  

Here is my Chocolate Poodle, version #3. I have a pretty good panel of taste testers. My two grown daughters are pretty reliable with what works or doesn’t and this is the one that finally passed.

There is first a general ingredient list. The recipe will list the actual brands I used in the cocktail. 


Chocolate Vodka
Creme De Cocoa
Chocolate Liqueur
Chocolate Syrup (canned or bottled)
Almond Milk
Chocolate Covered Almonds (optional)
Pocky Sticks (optional) 

The Chocolate Poodle

30 minutes before serving, put a martini glass in the freezer to chill.

1 ounce 360 Double Chocolate Vodka
1/2 ounce DeKupyer Creme De Cocoa
1/2 ounce Godiva Chocolate Liqueur 
1/2 ounce Hershey's Chocolate Syrup
1 1/2 ounces unsweetened vanilla   
    flavored almond milk
chocolate covered almonds
Glico Pocky Stick

Shake the liquid ingredients vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Add a chocolate covered almond or two. Garnish with a Pocky Stick. 

A closer look at the vintage

If you like cocktails, I hope you find this as delicious as we do.
