Welcome to Day #1 of Chocolate and Spirits Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate with Ciapirinha 65% (bar) was made by tree-to-bar maker, Chocolates Baiani (Brazil).
Aroma notes for this cocktail-inspired bar included: dark chocolate and subtle, sweet citrus (limeade).* A Brazilian Caipirinha (drink) contains cachaca (distilled spirit made from fermented sugarcane juice), lime juice and sugar.
This relatively thin dark chocolate was coated with lime-flavored sugar on the backside.
Flavor notes included relatively bold, smooth, high-quality, dark chocolate with a layered, well-balanced, upbeat, zesty lime and sugar personality.
*Ingredients: "Single origin cacao beans, organic cane sugar, cocoa butter, lime zest and aged cachaca. ** Does not contain alcohol.**"
