When my husband and I lived in Texas, I became a loyal supporter and enthusiast of the handmade vodka brand Tito’s Handmade Vodka, based in Austin, Texas. Their vodka is incredibly smooth – so smooth that I could sip them neat unlike other vodkas. My favorite cocktail featuring Tito’s Handmade Vodka is the Tito Rita, a tasty version of a margarita featuring cointreau, lemon, lime, and simple syrup that is absolutely perfect as you leisurely enjoy the warm Texas sun. I am beyond delighted to share this particular post with you today.
Here at Delysia Chocolatier, we are thrilled to announce that we are partnering with this award-winning brand and will be offering a limited edition Tito’s Truffle Collection from January through March 2015. These specialty-infused chocolates inspired by Tito’s cocktails will come in our signature nine-piece collection set.
Featured flavors of this limited edition set are:
Texas Sipper: Uniquely Texan, this truffle is both sweet and tart on the taste buds. The dark chocolate is infused with Tito’s Handmade Vodka, elderflower liqueur, and a hint of fresh, citrusy grapefruit.
Red Punch: Starting with 64% dark chocolate, this truffle is filled with Tito’s Handmade Vodka and the delightful combination of ripe pomegranate, robust orange zest, a hint of cinnamon, and bits with dried strawberries.
Bloody Mary: This truffle takes the art of a delicious Bloody Mary to new level of culinary artistry! Featuring 71% bittersweet chocolate, flavorful tomatoes, spicy jalapenos, a dash of celery salt, and a splash of Tito’s Handmade Vodka for an irresistible combination.
I can’t think of a more unique and delicious partnership between two award-winning, handcrafted brands. Both are beloved in their hometown of Austin, but also have adoring fans throughout the country. I have no doubt that this new collection will dazzle both vodka and chocolate aficionados alike. You can buy the truffles on the Tito’s web store while supplies last!
