Chocolate milk, made with a little peppermint extract, is poured over ice cream and served in a martini glass to make a fun holiday dessert.


  • Orange or lime wedges
  • Coarse sugar
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup chocolate or chocolate chip ice cream
  • 1 1/3 cups chocolate milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract or 2 drops almond extract (optional)
  • Chocolate curls
  • Maraschino cherries


  1. Using 4 chilled martini glasses, rub the rims of martini glasses with a wedge of orange or lime. Place sugar in a shallow dish; place cocoa powder in another shallow dish. Invert glasses and dip in sugar and then in cocoa powder to coat rims. Divide ice cream equally among martini glasses.
  2. In a small pitcher combine chocolate milk, vanilla and, if you like, peppermint extract. Pour over ice cream. Top with chocolate curls and cherries.


  • Chocolate-Coffee Milkshake Cocktail: Prepare as above except, use 2/3 cup chocolate milk and 1/2 cup freshly-brewed strong, cold coffee. If you like, substitute coffee ice cream for chocolate ice cream. Omit peppermint extract or almond extract.
