There are actually two Saratoga cocktails: one named after Saratoga, NY, and invented by Harry Johnson; the other named after Saratoga Springs and invented by Jerry Thomas. I’m not sure why this cocktail turned out so red-colored, but it tasted like a combination of a manhattan and a metropolitan.

Chocolate-infused rum
Ingredients: 1 part chocolate pieces (cocoa nibs are suggested; I used regular chocolate) to 2 parts rum (if you like coconut, use coconut rum). Shake and infuse in an airtight container for one day.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this combination, but it turned out really well. I was shocked by how quickly the flavor of chocolate infused into the rum. Probably one of the most successful infusions I’ve made so far, and that’s saying a lot.
What do you make from this chocolatey liquor? Stay tuned!
