So while you were having your Starbucks this morning…guess what I was doing?
I was concocting a Mocha Martini using Godiva’s Chocolate Truffle coffee.
You see, this post is part of Foodbuzz’s Tastemaker Program with Godiva Coffee.
As a featured publisher on Foodbuzz, I am occasionally invited to experiment with products and recipes.
Tough job. Someone has to do it.
Back to the Martini…
I decided to make cold pressed coffee.
There’s been a lot of buzz in the blogs-o-sphere over iced coffee and the cold press method.
I do believe Ree from The Pioneer Woman started the craze…
Then I saw it again on Pinterest from The Homesteading Housewife along with beautiful photos!
Finally in my e-mail box this week, one of my favorite bloggers Janae Monir teased me with her experience.
I had to do it.
It’s so ridiculously simple resulting in a wonderfully rich full-of-flavor brew.
Simply put 1 cup of ground coffee (the good stuff, you know what I’m talking about!) with one quart of cold water in a pitcher.
Cover a colander with cheese cloth…
That’s it…put it in the frig..and it’ll hold up for a few days!
We now have our rich, chocolate-y, cold coffee…
Let the games begin!
In a martini glass, pour in this order…
1.5 oz. Irish creme liqueur
1 oz. Godiva chocolate liqueur
1/2 oz. Vodka
2 oz. cold-pressed Godiva Chocolate Truffle iced coffee
drum roll please…
Two little scoops of chocolate ice cream!
I know what you’re thinnnking…
Did she or din’t ssshhee?
