Old Alhambra

chocolate liqueur Sep 19, 2018

Always excited to make chocolate cocktails. In this one there is just a touch of it though, so it certainly doesn't overwhelm the cocktail. What it rather does is to smooth out the smokey scotch in a quite clever way. Left behind is a mellow and round cocktail, further enhanced by the rich cream sherry and some delicious vermouth. Still, we just had to shoot this cocktail surrounded by cacao nibs…
