Inspired by the classic mudslide, the “There Will Be Chocolate” cocktail was made to be all about contrast: black paired with the white in two layers, a balance of hot and cold elements.
"At Ciro's we utilize ingredients from local businesses, including MADE Coffee and Coppertail Brewing Co.," says Austin Earle, bar manager and There Will Be Chocolate's creator. "This is definitely one of our most popular cocktails!"
Inspired by and in homage to an old Hollywood bar of the same name, Ciro’s is a classic cocktail bar located inside Tampa's historic Bayshore Royal Building. The beverage-centric menu employs traditional and historic techniques of mixing cocktails that evolved before, during, and in response to the Prohibition period of United States history.
