Ithaca-Is-The-Home-Of-The-Sundae Martini

In the summer of 2007, a newspaper article battle began between Ithaca, NY and Two Rivers, Wisconsin as to which city can claim to be the home of the first ice cream sundae, created in the late 1800’s. Being from Ithaca, Felicia is of course biased. Felicia took advantage of the debate and introduced the Ithaca-is-the-home-of-the-Sundae Martini. Though it tastes like an ice cream sundae in a glass, incredibly, the Sundae Martini contains no ice cream. What, you think Felicia wants to get fat? Who needs ice cream when one can have a martini?

Ithaca-is-the-home-of-the-Sundae Martini

1 ounce Stoli vanilla vodka
2 ounces Godiva while chocolate liqueur
5 maraschino cherries
whipped cream
chocolate sauce

Muddle four of the maraschino cherries. Add Stoli vanilla, Godiva and ice. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass. Top with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and the remaining cherry.
