Chocolate Berry Shrub Martini

Chocolate and berries are a marriage made in heaven. In this martini, a splash of Spiker’s Raspberry Bergamot Shrub or Black Currant Shrub balances the notes of a chocolate-infused vodka without being cloyingly sweet. Although we don’t ordinarily care for flavored spirits, we make an exception here because the vanilla notes of the vodka provide a richer overall taste. If desired, you can use a regular vodka instead.

Chocolate Berry Shrub Martini


  • 1 ounce Vanilla vodka or plain if desired
  • 1 ounce Dark Creme de Cacao light is acceptable in a pinch
  • 0.75 ounce Amaretto
  • 0.5 ounce Spiker's Raspberry Bergamot or Black Currant Shrub
  • Powdered cocoa or chocolate syrup for garnish0


  • Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the spirits and shrub and shake about 15-30 seconds.
  • Strain into a chilled martini glass.
  • As an optional garnish, before filling the glass dust the rim with powdered cocoa or a drizzle of organic chocolate syrup.
