An excellent complement to a drink 

Delicious chocolate can make for an excellent addition to a drink in many ways. Here are a few ways how you can mix chocolate and cocktails together:

As a flavor component: Dark chocolate can be added to cocktails as a flavor component. You can try this by using chocolate liqueur or melting chocolate and adding it to the cocktail mixture. For example, you can mix together vodka, chocolate liqueur, and peppermint schnapps to create a chocolate peppermint martini. Furthermore, you can melt dark chocolate and mix it with hot cream and vodka to make a hot chocolate martini.

As a rimming sugar: Another way to incorporate dark chocolate into your cocktails is by using it as a rimming sugar. To do this, simply mix together equal parts of granulated sugar and cocoa powder. Use it to rim the glass before filling it with your cocktail mixture. This adds a chocolatey twist to any cocktail.

As a garnish: Finally, dark chocolate can be used as a garnish for cocktails by grating or shaving it over the top of the finished drink. Plus, this adds a decorative touch and a burst of chocolate flavor with each sip.
