Last month when I was in LA I stayed at a Doubletree Hilton and was impressed with how nice it was. It was so nice I can’t wait until I get to stay at another Doubletree Hilton. And one of the really great things about staying at the Doubletree Hilton was the chocolate chip cookie they gave me when I checked in, and that’s just a small thing. In honor of the holidays the Doubletree Hilton sent me this recipe.
Chocolate Chip Martini Recipe
1.5 oz. Smirnoff Vodka
.5 oz. Butterscotch Liquor
.5 oz. Bailey’s
Pour all ingredients into a shaker filled up half way with ice and shake. Rim a martini glass with chocolate syrup and strain the ingredients into the martini glass and serve.
