Coffee/Chocolate LiqueursBoth coffee and chocolate liqueurs are often dark in color and tend to use real coffee and/or chocolate in its creation. But artificial flavors can be used. Often neutral spirits are used as the base but any liquor family can be used.
"Dark amber in color, on the nose this coffee liqueur smells like a sweetened cup of joe. There’s an underpinning of heat on this liqueur from its whiskey base, which is balanced nicely with coffee and chocolate notes. Though rich, it’s not saccharine, and would work well in cocktails or over ice as an after-dinner drink."
