I can not *WAIT* to make these red velvet chocolate martinis again for Valentine’s Day.

Being from the south, red velvet cake is a staple at most family functions. I was even given an entire red velvet cake by my cousin when I was recovering from my first craniotomy.

When my husband and I went to our corner ABC store to get the supplies for my boozy hazelnut turtle hot chocolate, I spotted this Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake and knew it had to be mine.

What is Baileys Red Velvet?

Baileys Red Velvet Cupcake is the liquor company’s liqueur inspired by red velvet cupcakes. Flavors of rich chocolate cake and cream cheese frosting are swirled with their signature Irish Cream, making a deliciously thick and rich bakery-inspired cordial that can be enjoyed over ice or as delicious red velvet chocolate martinis.

I used to be a bartender, and I would make chocolate cake shots all the time. They were one of my favs!

A chocolate cake shot is made with:

  • Frangelico hazelnut liqueur
  • Vodka (I always used vanilla vodka)
  • Served with a sugared lemon wedge

Since a true southern red velvet cake is reminiscent of a chocolate cake, I knew I had to incorporate those flavors into these red velvet chocolate martinis.

What’s in Red Velvet Chocolate Martinis?

Martinis tend to be very stiff, boozy libations, and I didn’t want the red velvet martini to be any different. It is meant to be a valentine’s day cocktail (or even a Christmas drink or Galentine’s day cocktail!). They’re essentially a double-decker chocolate martini:

This amazing chocolate martini consists of:

  • 1 shot (3 oz) Bailey’s Red Velvet Cupcake liqueur
  • 1 shot (3 oz) Vodka (like Stoli)
  • 1 shot (3 oz) chocolate liqueur (like Godiva or creme de cacao)
  • 1 shot (3 oz) hazelnut liqueur (like Frangelico)
  • 2 shots (6 oz) half & half or heavy cream

Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and give it a good shake. Strain into two martini glasses rimmed with sugar and serve!
