I've never tried it - but wouldn't it be a bit sweet for a Martini?

It is sweet - but it works.

Chocolate martinis are the best. The best I've had so far is from Brian the barman at the Dos Palmas resort in Palawan. The Feather Boa comes a close second.

The chocolate martinis in the Feather Boa are famed, but to be honest I wasn't that impressed; maybe it was my mood or the maltesers floating in it that put me off...
