Northern Latitudes’ Mackinac Island Fudge Chocolate Liqueur
Jan. 28, 2023
When making grown-up hot cocoa sounds like too much work, all you need to do is pull out a bottle of Northern Latitude Distillery’s Mackinac Island Fudge Chocolate Liqueur. This bad boy is smooooth, perfectly balancing the sweet and bitter of the recipe’s organic cocoa powder. We’ve tried it over ice, with a splash of coconut milk (our favorite), and with a drop of peppermint extract (seriously—one, max two drops) to mimic that cocoa-plus-candy-cane tingle. A chocolate martini is next on our list…though we’ll probably have to go get a new bottle first. An important detail to remember: The distillery doesn’t use emulsifiers in this beverage, so shake well before you pour. Find the liqueur at Northern Latitudes’ Lake Leelanau location at 112 East Philip St.; at local shops like Hansen Foods, The Beverage Company, and River Street Market; or online at northernlatitudesdistillery.com.
