A perfect evening at home usually involves an additional two things… chocolate and wine. Whether it is just having a Date Night In, Girls Night of Chit Chat, or just hosting a party at your home, I have found the perfect wine to serve… ChocolatRouge Wine!
ChocolatRouge Wine has created three unique, yet elegant chocolate and red wine combinations for any occasion Blending these two popular flavors together has created the perfect drinks to celebrate with in the New Year.
ChocolatRouge generously sent me their three wines: Sweet Red Blend, Milk Chocolate, and Dark Red Blend! While all three include of the combo of chocolate and wine, they still taste quite different from one another.
Since it was the holidays, I figured what better way to taste test these wines than with some of my loved ones! Luckily for me, they are all wine drinkers.
First up we tried the Dark Red, which is described as a fine red wine blend with dark chocolate flavors. If someone who enjoys red wine prefers a sweeter taste, then they may enjoy this wine with a filet mignon, steak, or other red meat pairing. The wine definitely has an aroma of chocolate, which is quite enticing. However this may serve better as an after dinner wine if one is swayed by the scent.
Second, we tried the Sweet Red. This wine can be described as a blend of fine red wine and rich chocolate flavors “reminiscent of chocolate-dipped red berries with a soft velvety finish“. I definitely found this wine much sweeter than the Dark Red. I almost feel like it could serve as a replacement of a port wine.
The last bottle we tried was the Milk Chocolate wine. This one was actually my favorite! It was a blend of rich chocolate flavors with a fine red wine. Definitely the sweetest of the three, however it goes down quite smooth. This wine is meant to be served chilled or on the rocks. Milk Chocolate also reminded me of some chocolate and cream based cocktails that I drink. This is a great alternative price wise and calorie count wise! This wine quickly became my evening “night cap” drink during the holidays. I love how affordable these wines are at $11.00 a bottle!
A favorite aspect of these wines is how versatile they are to use in cocktail recipes! For instance I’m loving the ChocolatRouge Orangette, where you simply mix 2 oz. of the Rich Chocolate and 1 oz. orange syrup. Shake and strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a chocolate-covered orange peel or twist of orange. Delicious! You can find a bunch of similar recipes right on their website.
