These chocolate cocktail recipes are perfect for a house party


What could be better than a glass of cocktail or a bowl of chocolate dessert? A dessert cocktail! Combining sweet treats with drinks is not a new idea and has been well-tested by many mixologists and chefs as well. After all, it’s hard to resist the sweet taste of a delicious chocolate cocktail. But how well it’s done is the debate. From boozy milkshakes to sweet martinis, many drinks contain chocolate flavored alcohol. Many of them use creme de cacao as it was the original chocolate flavored liquor in bars. Creme de cacao is a type of chocolate liqueur containing around 25% alcohol by volume and flavored with cocoa beans. It comes in white and dark varieties that taste the same but profoundly affect the color of a cocktail. These days, you’ll even find a few chocolate vodka recipes. The end result, however, is a tempting and balanced set of ingredients that’s just perfect for a dessert whenever you want to indulge in a decadent drink.

But it’s time to switch from chocolate liqueur or vodka, because we bring you recipes for chocolate cocktails with whiskey, straight from the bar in Glenfiddich. These cocktails are decadent, alcoholic yet balanced, and have a delicious set of ingredients such as cream, espresso, caramel syrup, chocolate sauce and more.
