Basic but elegant creamy texture which coats the mouth as the sweeter chocolate rushes over your taste buds. Great closer cocktail to finish the night.

Both aromatic and taste centric cocktail that brings lovely floral notes in the taste that reminds us of a blue sweetart. Sour without the chalkiness of a sweetart, very nice tart finish

A flavorful gin-based cocktail that has awesome lemon zest bite with a beautiful chocolate dessert finish. The taste is that of a classic gin cocktail but ends with something for the sweeter tooth.

Massive blood orange aroma, with a facial zing of sour bite with a creamy texture. Spiced rum plays a part in the overall flavor profile without dominating the drink, it's almost like a citrus sour.
