Chocolates for Grown-ups
If I were making a top-of-the-top-shelf marg, I would use Paula’s Texas Orange liqueur. Forget triple sec and Curacao. They pale in comparison to this stuff, which is super-intense and fresh-tasting. Now Paula’s has come out with an orange-and-chocolate candy. Wow. Each piece is a half-moon of top-quality dark chocolate filled with orange liqueur inside a thin sugar lining. Pop a whole one in your mouth and bite. First there’s a burst of flavor from the liqueur, then a sugar crunch, then the smooth dark chocolate. Nice little pick-me-up. You can get them at selected Whole Foods. Read all about the liqueur, and where to buy and drink it, online.
