Love at First Sight!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day!
We are always on the lookout for new, unique, interesting products to put on our shelves and lo and behold what caught my eye the other day? An Italian chocolate cream liqueur. In fact it caught everybody’s eye here at the store. I had to replenish stocks as the staff bought the first case!

But back to the liqueur, Meletti Cioccolato stands alone. This is the best chocolate cream I have tasted, period. The taste is rich, creamy, and sumptuous. The quality of the chocolate is the key here. Well, we drank it and then put it to the “mix” test. While it is absolutely delicious on its own, Meletti Cioccolato really came into its own when mixed.

This is what we made, and we’re calling it…

Love at First Sight

Fill a shaker with ice, add, 1 part vodka, 1/2 part Godiva Chocolate Liqueur and 1 part Meletti Cioccolato.

Shake and pour into a chilled martini glass. Top with some chocolate shavings.

Enjoy! We did.

About Denis Lynch

I am a true homegrown Irishman hailing from the only county you really need to know about, Cork. Whiskey, beer, wine and all manner of spirits are in my blood (figuratively speaking of course!). I first started my career in my Great Aunty Maisey’s pub in New Tipperary, Donoughmore, pouring pints and small drops to the auld lads after the fair. Little did I think back then that I would be taking a short hop, skip and a jump over to the U.S of A. But here I am and I have been with Vine & Table since the beginning. I am now the stores Beverage Manager and Spirits Buyer. I like to think that I have found my niche here in the US. I have a great love for all things spirits-wise and have developed our offerings here at Vine & Table to include the best Single Malt selection in Indiana. Pop in and see me for a chinwag and a small drop next time you are in Carmel. Slainte, Denis
