A Mocha Martini Morning


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 and refrigerate for at least 12 hours. (overnight is convenient!)

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?

    Wow. That’s a very special drink. I’m thinking I might save it as a replacement dessert ;) But impressive commitment to the recipe testing agenda (and your photos are beautiful)
