Is there something non-alcoholic that you would recommend to replace the Bourbon in the BÊTE NOIRE?

  • Hi Linda - the flavor of this chocolate dessert is based on the old-fashioned cocktail. Using another ingredient in place of the bourbon will alter the flavor significantly. That being said, a brewed tea might work - black or Earl Grey. Early Grey is a good pairing for dark chocolate. We would also recommend leaving out the bitters if you substitute for the bourbon and using vanilla extract instead of the bitters. Best, Lynn C.
