Today, October 28 is National Chocolate Day.
From the ancient Aztecs, who considered chocolate a food fit for the gods, to early Europeans, who believed it could serve as both a love potion and medicine, not an awful lot has changed in our centuries-old love affair with the cocoa bean.
We love chocolate primarily because it tastes so good. Every time we taste chocolate, it reminds us, if even for just a couple of seconds that there is beauty in the world. Taking a cocoa bean and transforming it into the sweet treat we all know and love is more precious than alchemy.
For National Chocolate Day we are celebrating with three scrumptious chocolate cocktails.
