FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — A rare, pink-tinted variety of chocolate has landed in Forest Hills. Gourmet chocolatier Aigner Chocolates has introduced two new hot beverages made from ruby chocolate, which comes from the ruby cocoa bean.
Aigner Chocolates co-owner and chef Mark Libertini has created a “ruby hot chocolate” and a cappuccino drink called the “rubiccino” using the rosy-hued chocolate, which has a sweeter and slightly fruitier taste.
Both drinks are topped with homemade, pink whipped cream and ruby chocolate shavings.
“The berry flavor lent itself to a drink and we thought hot chocolate and cappuccino are two terrific ways to showcase the terrific taste.”
