The Bitter Sweet Box
Chocolate and alcohol aren’t normally things that you would consume together. I mean, how many people have you seen with a drink on one hand a chocolate bar on the other one? Very few – because they would be doing it wrong.
Liquor and chocolate actually make a very good combination, but there’s more to it than it looks. What we call pairing (chocolate & liquors) actually takes some effort and skill; these two aren’t easy to blend together. When it’s done correctly, though, people may not want to consume chocolate traditionally ever again.
If you love gourmet chocolate, and you like liquors, then it’s time to take the next step. Add some personality to your favorite chocolate; make it sweet but grumpy at the same time. The combination of chocolate liquor is something unique – the flavors contrast each other while still being perfectly compatible (not to say delicious).
At Chocotenango, gourmet chocolate bars are our everyday. But don’t get it wrong – our chocolate can assume a huge variety of shapes and properties. At the end of the day, all we care about is spreading happiness in the form of chocolate. What a better way to make people smile than deluxe, paired chocolate?
Whether it’s with wine, a specific cocktail, or just a single liquor, we love seeing our chocolate becoming part of something new. We’re very proud and happy about our work, and we believe great things can come from mixing it with other great talents, like our friends at Modern Bar Cart.
Aside from featuring our chocolates, Modern Bar Cart offers valuable cocktail advice, podcasts, and recipes. But it doesn’t stop there. If there’s someone who knows how to pair something with liquor, it’s them. The Modern Bar Cart offer the bitter-sweet boxes, in which you can try the traditional flavor of the Chocotenango in combination with the orange and chocolate bitters from DC Embitterment.
The best part about chocolate pairing is that it’s perfect for nearly any occasion. If an important date is upcoming, treating your relative to a Bitter-Sweet box might as well be the perfect solution.
Chocolate gifts are just flawless – especially if they’re accompanied by such a powerful complement. One thing is for sure; if the chocolate bar doesn’t make them smile, don’t worry... the liquor will.
