Drink of the Week: Chocolate Martini


We’re kicking off the summer season with our first drink of the week, the Chocolate Martini from Menz Restaurant & Bar in Rio Grande!

If you have a sweet tooth, you’ll love this decadent and delicious cocktail that pairs well with your meal or serves as a boozy dessert.  Bartender John Menz recommended this drink because it has been highly requested in the past few weeks. The drink received rave reviews from customers seated at the bar as John broke out the martini glass. Say no more! Chocolate martini it is.

John started by coating the rim of the glass with hot chocolate mix and drizzled the glass with chocolate syrup. He added Svedka Vanilla Vodka, Dark Crème de Cacao, and a splash of half and half to the cocktail shaker to combine the rich ingredients. A few shakes later and it was ready for the taste test! Our consensus: DoTheShore approved.

In addition to the great drink selection, Menz’s Restaurant & Bar has a wide variety of food, including traditional items such as chicken parm and Maryland crabcakes that have been on the menu since the restaurant opened its doors. Enjoy the welcoming atmosphere, fun activities for the kids, live entertainment, and daily drink specials. Say hi to John next time you’re there and enjoy all the food and drinks Menz’s has to offer!
