One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A chocolate-flavoured liqueur.
- ‘The combination of brandy, creme de cacao, and either whole cream or ice cream sounds more like a Klondike bar than an aperitif.’
- ‘I'd made the drink from scratch, with baking chocolate and milk, spiked with a dollop of creme de cacao and topped with real whipped cream.’
- ‘In a medium saucepan, bring the sugar, water, and creme de cacao to a boil, reduce the heat, and maintain at a simmer until thick enough to coat the back of the spoon.’
- ‘Made with crème de cacao, brandy and cream, this cocktail was named after Alexander the Great.’
- ‘Before I knew it I was pouring just a hint of dark creme de cacao into the mixing glass, and wonder of wonders, it brought the drink to life.’
- ‘It appeared one evening after my woozy encounter with a White Chocolate Martini, a wicked drink made with Chopin vodka and icy-clear crème de cacao.’
- ‘And Saturday I had two cocktails containing vodka, Kahlua, Baileys and white creme de cacao, plus a tequila shot, totalling seven standard drinks, before I even left the house.’
French, literally ‘cream of cacao’.
