Sunset Cocktail: Sale of Indulgences on World Chocolate Day

2 oz Copper and Kings American Brandy
1 oz Fernet Branca
3/4 oz Godiva Dark Chocolate Liqueur
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
1 dash Scrappy’s Chocolate Bitters

Stir everything with ice and strain into a chilled Cocktail glass.

I freely admit that I was wholly unprepared for World Chocolate Day. After consuming a shit-ton more than I should have during a series of trainings at work that the instructor provided to keep us happy and awake, I took it upon myself to re-cut back on sugar again with the hopes of balancing  my terribly fluctuating diet. That and my nose breaks out when I eat too much chocolate and it’s finally recovering from that goddamned training.

I was looking for a drink that used a nice chocolate liqueur but wasn’t some sickening diabetic shock in a glass like most are opting for the Vodka and sugar boosts to a stomach wrenching dessert Hell. I came across this Sale of Indulgences on Kindred Cocktails. The original called for a VSOP Cognac but I wanted to use the Copper & Kings Brandy. It also called for the standard Godiva Chocolate Liqueur over the Dark but I think the Dark has a richer flavor that blended well to the complexities of the Fernet and Luxardo..
