Our holidays always include chocolate. We receive chocolate, gift it, cook with it and now I have discovered we can make cocktails at home with it. We love how Green & Black’s chocolate is a high quality, dark, bittersweet organic chocolate bar, packed with 70% cocoa solids AND is ethically sourced. You can buy and gift Green & Black’s chocolate in good conscience.
Tapping into Canadians’ passion for premium chocolate and love for the holidays, Green & Black’s has partnered with renowned Canadian chef and restaurateur of Toronto’s PianoPiano and Café Cancan*, Victor Barry, to develop one-of-a-kind chocolate-inspired cocktail recipes. These exquisite, easy-to-make cocktails will elevate your mixology to an impressive new level to thrill your guests with a truly unique holiday taste experience.
“The holidays are the perfect time to up your cocktail game,” says Chef Victor Barry. “I love pairing decadent ingredients such as Green & Black’s chocolate with unexpected ingredients to create completely new flavours.”
While these luxurious cocktails will make a special appearance at Toronto’s Café Cancan and PianoPiano from December 5-21, 2017, Green & Black’s is providing these exclusive recipes so you can create these special cocktails at home for your own holiday entertaining.
“Chocolate is very complex, which is why it’s such a versatile cocktail ingredient,” says Brandt Maybury, Taste Specialist at Green & Black’s. “With more than 600 different flavour compounds in cocoa, it pairs well with almost everything. Chocolate isn’t just a sweet treat. It can be bitter, spicy or even salty depending on your recipe.”
