Now that it is cooler, it’s time for warm-tasting drinks. These cocktails tend to start with darker bases, like a nice bourbon, and play to my favorite seasonal flavors. Sometimes, a nice, clean and pure drink works. With that in mind, let’s get down to business with the Spicy Chocolate Truffle Cocktail.

I’m a full-fledged chocoholic, this is something I’m both proud of and happily tell everyone I meet.

Naturally, I knew that I wanted some chocolate in this cocktail. While I do love our Homemade Crème de Cacao, I wanted a lighter flavor in this, so I went with a white crème de cacao.

Beyond simply chocolate, I felt like a little spice was in order. It’s important to keep things interesting and spice does that. Since the Aztecs invented drinking chocolate and they used spices in theirs, I figure there must be something right with that combination.

Chocolate and spice, everything nice is a good start — but something a touch more interesting and complex to round out the flavors. Something nutty. Something fun and fall-y. Luckily, our friends over at Frangelico had just sent us some of their fine drink, so yes thanks. Hazelnuts and chocolate are fast friends and Frangelico is up for anything, so I knew we had a winner.

Our final component was a touch of golden rum — because rum. Fair? Fair.
