So, to get this party started at my house, I decided to kick off the event by sharing my recipe for the latest craze in cocktails…smoked cocktails!!
Yes, you read that correctly! But don’t worry, even though you can add a smokey flavor by using many different methods such as actual, real smoke, I’m making it easy for everyone to prepare without the use of a smoker or fire!
My creation and contribution to this latest craze and chocolate event, is my very own Smoked Chocolate Chipotle Brown Sugar Stout that knocked our socks off and was the talk of the party!!
Deep, dark, rich stout with a velvety & creamy head, a kick of heat, a touch of smoke, and a pleasant balance of light sweetness infusing chocolate, and Light Brown Imperial Sugar®!
Imperial Sugar® is celebrating their 175th Anniversary this year, so I thought that an eclectic cocktail might be just the ticket for the celebration! We LOVE their products, and I’m sure you’ll lie them, and this festive cocktail, just as much as we do!
