They're the brains behind the growing Montezuma's Chocolate Empire and their first book, Montezuma's Chocolate Cookbook is out now.

They write: "What happens when you put ten bartenders in a room and ask them to make a Martini?

"Ten different drinks come back at you: choose from gin or vodka, vermouth or not, stir it or shake it, float an olive or sink some lemon garnish. One drink, so many options.

"Here is one more you may not have tried – this will add a touch of controversy to the Martini debate. This recipe serves 4 generously or could make up to 8 smaller cocktails."


  • Chocolate syrup, for swirling
  • 120ml chocolate milk, cold
  • 150ml vanilla vodka, from the freezer
  • 120ml Crème de Cacao
  • 120ml Irish Cream liqueur
  • 40g dark chocolate shavings, to decorate
  • Special equipment
  • large cocktail shaker
  • Martini glasses, placed in the freezer 10 minutes before


1 Take the glasses out of the freezer and swirl a little chocolate syrup around the inside for decoration.

2 Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the chocolate milk, vanilla vodka, Crème do Cacao and Irish Cream liqueur. Shake.

3 Strain the mixture into the Martini glasses. Decorate each glass with shaved chocolate before serving.
