This whiskey, coffee and chocolate cocktail is creamy and rich!
One of our favorite flavor combinations is coffee and chocolate, be it in our coffee cups or in a cocktail coupe! Typically people think of combining chocolate and hot coffee, but we wanted to something a little smoother and cooler! So what better way to come up with something new than to get to work and start tasting? Oh, it’s such a hard life being a cocktail blogger!

Cold Brew Coffee
One way to make coffee really smooth is to make cold brew coffee. When coffee is brewed using hot water, acidic flavors and bitter compounds are released into the coffee. Using cold water to brew coffee tends to release flavors that are more delicate, sweet and fruity that normally get covered up by the bitter flavors.
With the coffee part figured out, what about the chocolate? This was a perfect opportunity to use Mozart Spirit’s Chocolate Cream Liqueur, a premium chocolate liqueur made in Austria. Mozart Spirits draws on Salzburg’s rich history artisanal chocolatiers and their 150 years of distilling experience to create a delicious and rich chocolate cream liqueur that fans of chocolate will not want to miss!
Flavors with the Chocolate
We wanted to keep the flavors light and really highlight the chocolate and coffee together, but still wanted add a little twist to the pairing too! This where a little whiskey and a splash of Cynar come in! The whiskey brings a little spirit forward characteristic to the cocktail, while highlighting some of the sweetness of the chocolate liqueur. Cynar adds in a little bittersweet herbal quality that teases the tongue and adds a nice bit of character to the cocktail.
The final finishing touch was using a little bartender’s salt and pepper aka bitters! Adding a few dashes of aromatic bitters helped add a little bit of warm baking spice that further brings out the flavors of the cold brew coffee!
Whipped Cream Topping
With the flavors of the cocktail figured out, we need a little garnish to bring the wow! Why not a little bitters infused whipping cream to the top for flavor and visual appeal? We infused a little whipping cream with some black cherry bitters and a drizzle of honey to add a slight bit of sweetness. We gently whipped the cream to thicken it up and make it almost pillowy smooth.
The cream rounded out the flavors and brought a hint of smooth creamy finish to the drink! Top it with a couple of coffee beans to float on the whipped cream and not only do you get a great look, but every time you sip, you smell the coffee beans!
