Pairing Tito’s cold refreshments with chocolate

Delysia Chocolatier Titos Vodka Collection Chocolate Truffles

Summer’s here, which means one thing in Central Texas – heat. Locals find many creative ways to escape the escalating temperatures, and a nice, cold beverage is among the most favored. Today we’re pairing up five of our favorite summertime refreshments from Tito’s with our artisanal chocolates. It’s a deliciously relaxing way to beat the heat.


Tito’s Adult Lemonade

The Drink: Tito’s All American Lemonade

The Ingredients: Tito’s handmade vodka, lemonade of choice and a few slices of lemon.

The Chocolate: Citrus Collection Chocolate Truffles

Nothing says summer like a glass of lemonade. Of course, we love fresh, handcrafted ingredients. Hand-squeezed lemonade is the only way to go for this recipe. You’ll get the same textures and tastes in our Citrus Collection Chocolate Truffles. Fresh pulp and zest give each bite a tangy sweetness.


Minty Fresh Refreshment

The Drink: French Strawberry Mo-Tito

The Ingredients: Tito’s handmade vodka, fresh strawberries, mint, basil, simple syrup, fresh lime juice and St. Germain liqueur.

The Chocolate: Lavender Chocolate Bark

The minty notes of the drink are mimicked perfectly in the Lavender Chocolate Bark. The fresh ground lavender gives the chocolate a hint of minty flavor reminiscent of each sip you drink.


Refreshing Start to a Sunday

The Drink: Blooming Mary

The Ingredients: Tito’s handmade vodka, avocado, lemon juice, lime juice, tomatillos, cilantro, jalapenos, salt and pepper.

The Chocolate: Texas Hill Country Collection Chocolate Truffles

Tito’s twist on the classic Bloody Mary is nothing short of Texas perfection. Many of the Lone Star State’s most beloved flavors come together with this drink and box of chocolates. It’s spicy, salty and sweet all at once.


Intoxicating Antioxidants

The Drink: Tito’s Sweet Green Tea

The Ingredients: Tito’s handmade vodka, fresh lemon juice, honey simple syrup and green tea.

The Chocolate: Wellness Collection Chocolate Truffles

Who said an adult beverage and chocolate couldn’t be healthy? Tito’s Sweet Green Tea and the Wellness Collection Chocolate Truffles are overflowing with antioxidants. You might have a tough time deciding whether the drink or the Green Tea Chocolate Truffles are the best reimagining of matcha.


Simple Perfection

The Drink: Tito’s All-Time Favorite

The Ingredients: Tito’s handmade vodka, sparkling mineral water, slice of orange and slice of lime.

The Chocolate: Tito’s Vodka Collection Chocolate Truffles

The drink is simple perfection, while the chocolates add a number of interesting flavor notes without overpowering the experience. The tart, tangy sweetness of the Texas Sipper Truffles and Red Punch Truffles plays nicely with the fresh citrus garnish of the drink.
