NEW YORK, Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the most indulgent day of the year, GODIVA Liqueur Company introduces new GODIVA® Dark Chocolate Liqueur. Combining the renowned GODIVA chocolate tradition with spirited innovation, this liqueur is the delicious embodiment of liquid dark chocolate. With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, this is the perfect occasion to bring the gold standard in chocolate to the ultimate chocolate martini.
The enticing GODIVA Dark Chocolate Liqueur was inspired by GODIVA's rich dark chocolate and pleases the palate with a blend of flavors including deep, unsweetened dark chocolate, bright black cherry, candied sweet orange peel with a hint of cold-brewed coffee peeking through. This versatile liqueur is dairy-free, allowing it to easily mix with an array of spirits and ingredients, resulting in the perfect cocktail to share with friends during a night out on the town, while entertaining at home, or when toasting a special moment. Revel in the moment by mixing it into the signature GODIVA Dark Desire made with CIROC® Amaretto and orange juice or put a modern spin on one of the country's most enjoyed cocktails, the Chocolate Martini, by mixing GODIVA Dark Chocolate Liqueur with CIROC® Ultra-Premium Vodka, a sure way to spice up an evening with friends.
"We're excited to provide chocolate lovers with the latest addition to the GODIVA Liqueur family," says Stephanie Jacoby, Director of Liqueurs. "GODIVA Dark Chocolate Liqueur is a delicious full-flavored indulgence with less guilt. As with all of our decadent offerings, we encourage everyone to drink responsibly."
The new flavor will launch this month at a suggested retail price of $29.99 per 750ml bottle. It will be available nationwide wherever fine spirits-based beverages are sold and joins GODIVA Chocolate Liqueur and White Chocolate Liqueur.
