Crave Chocolate Liqueurs is a decadent new chocolate liqueur from DeKuyper. Offered in three tempting varieties (Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate Mint, and Chocolate Chili), each one balances chocolate and natural flavors for a delicious, indulgent experience.
As a mint lover, I instantly went for the Chocolate Mint variety. The experience begins with the tastes of sweet chocolate and vanilla, which gradually introduces peppermint to the palate and finishes with an intriguing and pleasant cooling effect.
You can enjoy Crave served over ice, but it really shines as a distinctive addition to a cocktail. We decided to try some of the cocktail recipes found on Crave’s website, and served them up after Thanksgiving dinner. And let me tell you, they were a HUGE hit with the family!
Here are some drink recipes you might enjoy:
