Forget Love – rather, fall for Chocolate Soldier cocktail. The drink isn’t as sweet as a chocolate, but you will definitely get addicted to it. The combination of three ingredients makes this beverage as tough as a soldier who is strong enough to battle against all odds. The first sip of this drink will give you the same adrenaline rush as a soldier feels when he acquires triumph against his enemy force.
Besides gin, one of the most used spirits in cocktail, Dubonnet is also used. Dubonnet is basically French vermouth which has a sweet flavor, usually served with food. The last ingredient is lime juice which complements the flavor of Chocolate Soldier Cocktail. For casual parties and small gatherings of friends, this drink can absolutely serve its purpose as a cool welcome drink. You should increase the ratio because your guests will demand for a second round!
