Cocktail Recipe Chocolate Old Fashioned

An oldie but a goodie, chocolate lovers will adore this Chocolate Old-Fashioned with their favorite Johnnie Walker Scotch Whisky, a hint of zesty orange and lots of chocolate flavour thanks to a splash of Chocolate Port Liqueur, chocolate bitters and chocolate garnishes. Velvety and sweet, this whisky cocktail is a great after-dinner sipper.

Whisky is wonderful for many reasons, but one of my favorites is how well it pairs with so many flavours.

Its canvas of tasting notes — oak, caramel, smoke, molasses, vanilla and more which offers room for pairing with a spectrum of complementary flavors. 

Chocolate is another delicious pairing, bringing out the sweet caramel and vanilla flavours in Whisky.

This chocolate old-fashioned celebrates this duo, with a hint of coffee and orange zest.
