pairing gin and chocolate
gin is made from neutral grains such as rye, barley, wheat and corn. the flavor of gin is more herbal and dry, and the primary “defining flavor” comes from juniper berries, thus the “piney” aroma and taste. gin’s dry profile makes it an ideal candidate for pairing with lighter fruits, which naturally work well with herbs
a milder gin pairs particularly well with white chocolate. the herbal notes of juniper can add a layer of depth to mild white chocolate, complimenting one another without being overwhelming
stronger scented floral gins like ‘bloom’ need a more distinct contrast in order to keep the flavor profiles of both the gin and the chocolate intact. White and milk chocolate are both a bit too delicate for stronger gin blends; the cocoa flavor is lost and just sweetness remains. although a higher cocoa content dark chocolate can hold its own, neither overpowering or being overpowered by the gin – complementing each other perfectly
pairing coffee and chocolate
coffee and chocolate are a natural, delectable pairing. done right, this combo can make the finest chocolate taste richer and the highest quality coffee feel like drops of sweet silk in your mouth. done wrong, it can taste like a mouthful of dirt. to get the optimal pairing, you need to understand the flavor, acidity, and textural components of both your coffee and your chocolate and how they interact
