Chocolate Cordials with a Rose Wine Filling
A marriage of rich dark chocolate with a liquid filling that enlivens your taste buds: together they make a most satisfying union. Originating in Renaissance-period apothecaries, the cordial was an alcohol-based medicine – and aphrodisiac – made with fermented fruits, spices, and herbs to stimulate the heart and improve circulation. Eventually cordials became a fruit-based alcohol and in the late 1800s, a candy that was deliciously decadent and alcohol-free. The rose’ wine goes back even further, possibly the to the 10th century BCE. The combination is entirely new, but carries the tastefulness of its predecessors. Approximately 3 ounces in a disposable champagne glass with a keepsake tag.
A marriage of rich dark chocolate with a rose wine filling in the center that engages your taste buds. Originating in Renaissance-period apothecaries, the cordial was an alcohol-based medicine made with fermented fruits, spices, and herbs that helped stimulate the heart and improve circulation. The cordial came to signify a fruit-based beverage, a liqueur, and, eventually, a kind of tempting sweet. Rose wine goes back even further – possibly the oldest wine in history going back thousands of years. Eight luscious ounces…comes in a bag with a ribbon on top. Or – treat yourself (or someone else!) to a disposable champagne glass with about three ounces of cordials.
