#DOTW: Samoa Martini

I’m pretty sure we all have at least one friend that sells Girl Scout cookies for their children. What a blessing they are, bringing all that yummy goodness into our lives, giving us a really good excuse to cheat on our diets! Being the eternal bartender, of course I had to turn my favorite cookie into a Martini. I just can’t help myself. It turned out pretty yummy! FYI you can exchange the coconut vodka with Malibu Coconut rum, if you like it a little less strong. Also if you care to up the coconut flavor, get some coconut extract from the baking isle in your supermarket and have fun!



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Smirnoff Coconut Vodka (or quality coconut vodka of your choice)
  • 1 1/2 oz Godiva Dark Chocolate
  • 1 1/2 oz Godiva Caramel
  • Samoas cookies, ground up in a blender or food processor

Garnish the rim of a Martini glass with the ground cookies. Combine all liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into the Martini glass.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
