These Boozy Choco Shots Are The Cure To Your Cocoa+Alcohol Cravings On Cheat Days

Shruti posted on 20 January

Shortcut

Fromage in MRC Nagar is Chennai’s popular restobar that focuses on wine and cheese {they even have a Parmesan Wheel, guys!}, but did you know about their latest Boozy Chocolate Drinks menu?

Worth A Shot

As soon as we heard about this new menu, we just had to give it a shot { alright, we’ll stop it with the puns!}. We dropped by Fromage and met up with L Nitin Chordia, who is a chocolate maker at Cocoatraits along with his wife. These guys organise all kinds of chocolate pairings in the city. They’ve even done the latest Hot Chocolate menu at the Brew Room. The menu offers five kinds of shots — each priced at INR 250. Oh, and it’s completely vegan. Even if you don’t enjoy alcohol, you’re still going to enjoy this because it’s pure chocolate, not cocoa powder, mixed with {20ml} of alcohol. Don’t believe us? Let’s have a look at how it went down, quite literally.

Shot & Sweet

So these are shots you probably don’t want to glug down in a jiffy.  Stop a little, slow down and enjoy the taste… trust us, it’s worth it. If you love whiskey, try the Chocolate Barrel. This has chocolate made from beans from South America and Africa. It’s a smooth drink and there’s a warm, tingling aftertaste — from the whiskey. And the chocolate? Delicious!

Lovers of wine, you’ve got two options here. The first one is Red Wine Chocolate where the wine is perfectly balanced with the dark, rich chocolate. It’s smooth, it’s creamy, it’s tasty. But if you want to take it up a notch, try the Red Wine Mocha. Absolutely scrumptious with subtle wine and coffee flavours, although we wouldn’t have minded a stronger dose of coffee in there. Vodka your go-to drink? Try The Chocolate Vodka Martini. This is creamy and oh-so-decadent, but the vodka taste is just a tad bit stronger when compared to the other shots, so if you’re not a fan, you can give this one a miss.

What A Shot

But the one you absolutely shouldn’t miss {and the one we want to go back for} is the Mexican Shot-Out. Tequila and hints of spices with swirling rich chocolate made from locally-sourced beans from Karnataka and Kerala! We can’t decide if we want this before, after or during a meal! Maybe, all three?

So if you’ve decided to take a cheat day, or just be done with NY resolutions, head here and you won’t feel an ounce of guilt. The drinks are perfectly balanced, neither star ingredient overpowers the other in most cases. Go on, get high on chocolate right away!

#LBBTip
