I discovered Theo Chocolates Bitters at the grocery store recently and I became obsessed with making a drink with them. Obsessed. The problem is, I'm not a "sweet cocktail" kind of gal. A little whiskey tones down the sweetness from the chocolate liqueur and the rim of melted chocolate is an unexpected treat that melts as the drink winds down.
2 ounces whiskey
1 ounce chocolate liqueur
2 ounces soda water
dash of Theo Chocolate Bitters
Dip the rim of a highball glass in melted chocolate. Fill glass with ice and pour whiskey, chocolate liqueur, and soda over ice. Stir gently. Top with a few dashes of bitters.
