The Chocolate Old Fashioned – A Date Night Cocktail for Two

chocolate old fashioned bourbon cocktail

This week I asked my fiancé what she wanted for Valentine’s Day – besides, of course, that giant, life-sized, heart-shaped box of chocolates we saw at CVS.  Her answer was one word: chocolate.  So…. you can see what she’s interested in enjoying this Valentine’s Day.  This Chocolate Old Fashioned is a hit with the ladies and the guys – strong, rich, with deep layered notes of oak, leather, cherry, and of course, velvety chocolate.  This cocktail is a great way to start a Valentine’s (or any) date night with your special someone. Enjoy!
