I live in New Zealand and on a recent Nigella cooking programme she made a Chocolate Martini. I wasn't able to get the specific ingredients or amounts and I would love to duplicate this drink. I've searched your site but it doesn't come up with any listig for a Chocolate Martini. Thanks for your help. Kind Regards, Lea Werner.
Please could you specify the final ingredient in Nigella's Espresso Martini which she makes on her TV show? She says equal parts of toffee liqueur, coffee liqueur, espresso and then she adds one more spirit which looks like vodka but she didn't say (or is it Cinzano - that's how I make martini). Many thanks for your help, Hogelstick.

I think there is a difference between the English teaspoons and the Dutch teaspoons (Dutch are smaller). Could you give me the measures of a 'teaspoon' in your recipes? Thank you!
