Smoky tequila, cocoa crème liqueur, touches of refreshing citrus and a Nutella-rimmed glass — this cocktail is doing the most, and then some.
It strikes the perfect balance between rich chocolate flavors and light, crisp citrus. The chocolate hazelnut spread rim is an added treat to an already delectable drink.
