Everyone is in the best of spirits during the holidays. Whether you serve it at parties, give it for gifts, or even drink it yourself, here are a few of my favorites:

Premium Liqueur Infuses Flavor and Indulgence into Your Holidays

Crave Chocolate Liqueurs featuries three tempting flavors – Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate Mint and Chocolate Chili. Inspired by the universal desire for decadent and indulgent experiences, this exceptional, premium line of chocolateliqueurs offers a unique cocktail option just in time for the festive holiday season and ever after..

Capturing the luscious taste of chocolate and pairing it with three distinct flavors, JDK & Sons™ Crave balances chocolate with natural flavors to create a delicious liqueur:

o Crave Chocolate Cherry Liqueur delivers a smooth, rich tasting experience similar to that of the classic cherry cordial. The taste of sweet cherries takes center stage and is complimented by hints of cocoa. It leaves a sweet finish on the palate with notes of fruit, vanilla and bittersweet chocolate.

o Crave Chocolate Mint Liqueur is ideal for peppermint lovers. The experience begins with the tastes of sweet chocolate and vanilla, which gradually introduces peppermint to the palate and finishes with an intriguing and pleasant cooling effect.

o Crave Chocolate Chili Liqueur offers a delicious and surprising twist with its hint of heat. The sweet flavor of milk chocolate, which is enhanced with notes of vanilla and caramel, slowly gives way to the tingly warmth of chili peppers and offers the perfect balance of sweetness with a subtle kick.

Perfect for chocolate lovers and cocktail enthusiasts alike with a new way to delight their senses during one of the most indulgent times of the year,” said Gary Ross, Director of Cordials and Rums for Beam Inc. “Whether treating yourself to a decadent cocktail or looking to create a memorable experience at your next holiday party, each distinctive flavor delivers the rich taste of chocolate paired with a unique flavor for an enticing way to satisfy your cravings.” JDK & Sons™
