Doing away with the heavy, creamy tendencies of most chocolate-based cocktails, we take a lighter, more aromatic route with some acidity to balance things out while still managing to pack in a triple dose of cocoa. As a bonus, this cocktail includes two more aphrodisiacs – almonds (in the orgeat syrup) and cardamom (in the Ransom Old Tom gin).
