Martinis, margaritas and piña coladas are a few of the cocktail drinks that inspired the creation of Montezuma's Cocktail Truffle Collection.
The unique chocolate set includes four flavors that are made with a base of either milk or dark chocolate and are enhanced with a variety of spirits like rum, brandy and tequila, as well as classic cocktail ingredients like coconut, lime and pineapple. The finished collection is packaged in a gift-ready box that's idea for chocolate lovers and cocktail drinkers alike.
As many consumers are taking steps to reduce their consumption of alcohol, and this is being reflected in a decline in alcohol sales around the world, there is a burgeoning market of products inspired by or lightly flavored with alcoholic products.
