Christmas is Coming: Can The Cocktail of the Hour Be Far Behind? S’moretini Arrives!

By on December 2, 2011

A bar in Manhattan,  The Duo Lounge, on Madison Avenue, is aiming to corner the Christmas market with this silly and flip version of a sweet martini.  If you’re planning a silly and flip little party this holiday season,  why not give this silly and flip cocktail a shot. Especially if it starts to snow.  Just begs for a snowstorm doesn’t it?


Manhattan’s Duo Lounge S’moretini  

Rim a martini glass with chocolate syrup and crushed graham crackers.

Combine 2 oz of Ketel One Vodka* with 1oz Crème de Cacao in a cocktail shaker


Vigorously shake with ice and strain into the martini glass.

Top the martini off with a scoop of marshmallow crème (such as Fluff), a drizzle of chocolate syrup and a marshmallow.

Sit by a fire and enjoy.



*Inspired by 300 years of tradition, Ketel One® Vodka is crafted from small batches in the Dutch tradition by the 10th generation of the Nolet family. The Ketel One name is derived from Distilleerketel #1, the original coal-fired copper pot still which remains in operation today.This time-honored process results in a fine quality vodka, ideal for enjoying on the rocks.
