We're back...this time we are in the Cocktail Kitchen with bartender Gregg Alston of Kiran's Restaurant. He is cooking up an Urban Swank favorite; a Chocolate Jalapeno Martini. This is one of those times we had dessert before our meal, and were excited about it! Recipe Ingredients/Directions: 1 1/2 ounces Stoli Vanilla Vodka, 1 1/2 ounces Kahlua, 2 ounces Godiva Liqueur, 1 dash of Half & Half, 1 Jalapeno, sliced (remove the seeds, but keep a few to add later). Add the slices of Jalapeno, along with the saved seeds with 1/2 ounce of vodka to the shaker. You will then begin to do an intense muddle to break up those seeds. Add the ice cubes to the shaker along with all the other ingredients. Cover the shaker tightly and do a mild shake until all ingredients are well combined and well chilled.
