This is one spectacular cocktail, unfortunately it takes quite a bit of preparation a day before to have it at the ready for drinks, but it is well worth the effort if you're willing to put it in! It has a powerfully strong, rich chocolatey flavour lying in wait in the strong, dense texture that is somewhat reminiscent of chocolate mousse. It still, in the most lovely way possible, manages to maintain a lovely smooth overall taste, which hides all punch that any alcohol inside could contain. The coffee taste does come through, but in more of a background role which adds a nice layer to the texture. The flavour of the bailey's adds to both the chocolate and coffee flavours, but you really have to look hard for it if you want to find it. Mostly reminds you of eating a delicate chocolate mousse, it is quite lovely... Goes down a treat, you could enjoy a large number of these before even thinking of ever getting tired of them. Our advice? Try it! You definitely won't regret it, unless you are a vegan or lactose intolerant!
