Looking for a decadent and delicious cocktail to share with your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day? Look no further than this chocolate orange cocktail, aptly named “Love Bites.” This cocktail will “bring you to your knees” with its smooth texture, sweet, complex chocolate flavour, and gorgeous pink colour. This cocktail is the love child that was born from the beautiful duet of chocolate and orange commonly found in the popular “wack to unwrap” chocolate during the holiday season.
With the name Love Bites, this cocktail can be an homage to those playful red marks or a reminder that sometimes “Love Bites, Love Bleeds.” Either way, this cocktail is a fitting tribute to the ups and downs of love and a way to celebrate it with your special someone. This cocktail is best enjoyed as a digestif after a romantic dinner or simply while listening to your favourite Def Leopard love ballad🎵
