Date-Night In: The Sweet Side Posted by: Aaron Stearns | 0 Comments

Chocolate and Bourbon are just about the perfect pairing. This is because depending on the type of barrel used, and the aging process, the taste of Bourbon often includes notes of vanilla and caramel. Other common tasting notes in bourbon include nutmeg, or toasted nuts. Therefore, when choosing a type of chocolate or dessert to sweeten your night with, look for chocolate or recipes with caramel, vanilla or assorted nuts.

For a sweet treat to enjoy with your bourbon cocktails, create a simple spread with some of the following:

  • Dark chocolate, with caramel
  • Almonds, pecans, or other nuts
  • Graham crackers w/ chocolate hazelnut spread, sprinkle coconut flakes
  • Salted caramel candy pieces
  • Apples with caramel dipping sauce
  • Homemade chocolate chip cookies
  • A nutty toffee

Three winners will receive 2 copper mugs (valued at $500), bourbon accessories to create the drinks above, and a $100 Bourbon & Boots Gift Card. Shop our Valentine’s Collection for details.
