Does your cocktail need some chocolate? A Cholive could be just what you’re looking for.
Cholive = chocolate + olive … get it? Don’t worry, they are not actually chocolate-covered olives.
They are olive-shaped chocolate truffles. Skewer them and you have a delicious cocktail garnish.
Here’s one recipe that sounds like a good use of chocolate!
1 oz Van Gogh Dutch Chocolate Vodka
1 oz Green Creme de Menthe
1.5 oz White Creme de Cocoa
.5 oz Half & Half
Shake all ingredients with ice in a cocktail shaker and strain into an old-fashioned glass with ice. Garnish with a skewered Cholive.
Of course, DIY folks out there could skewer any tiny chocolates and see how that works, too!
