While Easter is a time of religious focus and family, many of us are eager to crack open our Easter eggs, with the Easter holidays being all about indulging in fine chocolate. From those scrumptious Mini Eggs and adorable Malteser bunnies to yummy chocolate cake, Easter encourages the chocoholic in us to rear its head.

If you are planning a festive soiree this Easter, it is wise to serve and enjoy drinks that complement choccy. Below, we share a few for you to consider.

Rum

Rum is a drink that pairs beautifully with chocolate. This is because the rich, dark tones of cocoa are undercut by tropical flavours that rum provides. From pineapple and lime to ginger and orange, rum and chocolate is a combo you should give a go this Easter.

Red Wine

Red wine and chocolate are another great supercouple. Though both being traditionally ‘heavy’, they just seem to work. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon would be our suggestions.

Tia Maria

Now, nothing goes better with chocolate than more chocolate. This is why sipping on a chocolate-based drink whist having your share of Easter egg just makes sense. Tia Maria is an obvious choice, a popular Chocolate-based liquor that can be served straight, with cola or as part of a cocktail.

Tequila

Last, but by no means least, we have Tequila; a sharp spirit that is punchy and rather strong. Perfect for those that do not want a heavy drink after a whole load of sweet treats, a shot of Tequila followed by a chunk of choccy will be a real delight for the taste buds. Throw in some salted caramel chocolate and you have a real winning combination on your hands.

So, there you have it; our top drinks to enjoy with chocolate! If you have any other suggestions, share them in the comments section below.
