Green Cacao Cocktail

Green Cacao Cocktail

Green Cacao Cocktail is certainly not a shy cocktail. Its rich, strong flavors are layered with bitter chocolate notes, herbaceous tones, and a distinctive peat-smudged smokiness. The alcohol forward nature of the cocktail speaks to those who prefer an assertive drink.
