If you dabble in alternative Martinis (cocktails that aren’t technically related to real Martinis in any way but happen to be served in Martini glasses), you’re probably all too familiar with chocolate liqueur, which is squirted liberally into ‘tinis of all types. Sadly, the chocolaty elixir available behind the stick often leaves much to be desired. Laden with sugar (or, more likely, high-fructose corn syrup) and cream, it is usually lacking in the most important flavor: actual chocolate.
So we set out to create our own version of a chocolate liqueur that’s as smooth as a Cadbury Creme Egg and complex as a glass of Highland scotch. And, not to pat ourselves on the back too much, we more than succeeded. Ready to get buzzed on liquid chocolate?
