Butterscotch, toffee, coffee, chocolate… the whole world of candies awaits you in the world of dessert liqueurs, but where o where is caramel?
Here it is: Godiva’s Caramel Milk Chocolate Liqueur, a blend of two flavors that I’m guessing you don’t need me to lay out here for you.
I’m an unabashed fan of Godiva’s Original Liqueur and White Chocolate Liqueur, and I am enjoying the Caramel Milk Chocolate flavor quite a bit, too. Alas, it’s not quite as good as its forebears — there’s an understated chemical-like aftertaste that gives the CMC the tiniest letdown on the finish if you’re drinking it on its own — but on the whole it works well in a wide array of dessert drinks. I’ve paired it with nut-flavored, vanilla, butterscotch, and of course various chocolate liqueurs, and every time the drink comes out even better than before. Give it a spin.
