Dress up your favorite whiskey with dark chocolate notes in this effortless DIY chocolate-infused whiskey. Easy to make in just 3 days with minimal prep and a short strain, it’s a great infusion for Old Fashioneds, Manhattans, Mint Juleps, Whiskey Sours and all your whiskey favorites.
Add the whiskey and cacao nibs to a mason jar and seal.
Let the nibs infuse in a cool, dark place for at least 48 hours and up to 1 week. Each day, agitate the infusion and start checking flavor after 48 hours.
Once you love the flavor, strain through a metal sieve and store it in a clean glass jar. If you prefer a sweeter chocolate-infused whiskey, add 1 oz of simple syrup to the jar and store it in the fridge.
