- 2 ounces Stoli Vanilla Vodka
- 1/4 ounce White Cream de Cacao
- Bittersweet chocolate shavings (Hank's prefers Schokinag, but any high-quality Bittersweet chocolate may be substituted)
- Edible red rose petals*
- *Edible rose petals are available at Whole Foods Market and other organic markets.
Sprinkle bittersweet chocolate shavings onto a flat saucer. Invert a chilled martini glass onto the plate, and turn the glass to coat the rim with the chocolate. Fill a cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Add the Stoli Vanilla Vodka and White Crème de Cacao. Shake until well chilled. Strain into rimmed martini glass, and garnish with a few edible rose petals.
