This time of the year chocolates wrapped in pretty pink, purple and blue pastel colors are at the front of every store aisle, tempting you to break your diet and buy a bag (or four) of candy. While I love buying chocolate as much as anyone, when holidays come around I prefer to get my chocolate fix through cocktails! Drinking your chocolate instead of eating it allows for some delicious combinations that don’t seem to work as well in solid form, for example: Chocolate and Bacon. These are two of America’s favorite flavors, and while eating a handful of Hershey’s with some crispy slices of bacon may float your boat, mixing the two flavors in a cocktail tastes much better (and is much less messy)!

If you prefer a less extreme combination of chocolate and bacon you can mix up a chocolate martini while you eat sizzling bacon hot off the frying pan!

Cheers to Chocolate and Bacon!
