Tips for bartenders: why choosing cocktails with organic cocoa nibs instead of cocoa liqueur?
Usually cocktails don’t include cocoa nibs , preferably they call for cocoa powder, or cocoa liqueur! I have picked up my package of organic cocoa nibs to add a touch of crunchy garnish to this evergreen classic cocktail, the Alexander!
Especially in the early years, cocoa powder from organic cocoa nibs was only one ingredient for my cups of milk at breakfast time! Then I discovered it could be gently stirred and added to milkshakes, desserts and smoothies…as well as hot chocolate!

We make cocktails, not drinks!
… it’s only after shaking my first cocktail with cocoa liqueur that I started thinking how could I have gone beyond that border of Cocoa = breakfast milk cups!
I originally created a simple-easy garnish around the rim of my glass, a so-called “crusta” so that you sip your drink and grab your organic cocoa nibs with your lips, and feel a little bitter after taste when chewing those little cute brown chips!
They can , of course be blended, grinder and infused in spirits … but with my next cocktail I’ll stick to the classic, and I will just consider this organic superfoods as a garnish for my glass!

It is inspired to the classic well known Alexander cocktail, but this one is packed in superfoods!
Surely we can not call it healthy, due to a slightly increased amount of alcohol, but certainly an interesting tipple to enjoy, if you’re in legal age for drinking and partying with a little booze!
