Infuse over night. Strain through a sieve and cheesecloth.
I use Taza chocolate because of its unique process. Taza chocolate is stone ground and minimally processed. They use authentic Oaxacan stone mills instead of steel refiners to grind their cacao. Due to the imperfect surface of a granite millstone, unrefined cacao particles and sugar granules remain in the finished chocolate. These pop with explosive flavor on the palate, lending the chocolate their distinctive granular texture.
I live in Vancouver B.C. Where can I buy Organic Stone Ground Mexican Taza Chocolate? (Or at least something close)
I do not see the ground version on Taza’s website http://www.tazachocolate.com/. Cacao nibs would work also. I would try a gourmet grocery store by you and see what kind of quality ground chocolate they have.
I accidentally used some of the Taza chocolate that contains spicy peppers. It is the best mistake I have ever made. Awesome recipe.
Adam, That sounds awesome! I’ll have to revisit this cocktail asap.
