Best if served slightly chilled.

Chocoholics beware: a hint of cream smooths the party that’s about to happen in your mouth! Oh my. What’s not to love about chocolate, raspberry and 190° ‘shine perfectly blended together? Refrigerate after opening. Warning: do not leave in a hot car, unless you enjoy baked chocolate raspberry in a bottle. But then you can’t get it out. Store and serve from the fridge.

Never heard of a Mocha-tini? Neither had we till we invented it! A great way to finish dinner or start the day. Shake together with ice equal parts of our Chocolate Raspberry and espresso or coffee vodka. Strain and Serve in a mini martini glass. Pro version: rim the glass with malted milk and garnish with a malted milk ball with one end trimmed to allow the goodness in.

Liquid Mounds Bar–tini
A perfect dessert drink for the chocoholic. Two parts Chocolate Raspberry, one part each of chocolate and coconut vodkas, shake together with ice and serve in an ice cold martini glass. Whole blackberries on a swizzle stick make a nice garnish.

Chocolate Lab
We like to use Black Dog Coffee, a locally roasted coffee, to make this special flavored mocha. Add one shot of Chocolate Raspberry to a cup of hot coffee. For hot summer days try over ice. For a bit more potency and some interesting flavor perks, add a bit of marshmallow or whipped cream flavored vodkas.

Black Raspberry Sorbet Special-i-ciousA burst of flavors made simply. A scoop of blackberry sorbet, topped with a few whole red and black raspberries then drizzled with our Dark Chocolate Raspberry Liqueur will satisfy just about all sweet tooth requirements.
