Reason for Asking the Question
The word “liquor” usually refers to an alcoholic beverage so people assume that “chocolate liquor” must also contain alcohol and thus be prohibited. The word “wine” refers to an alcoholic beverage so people assume that “wine grapes” may contain alcohol and thus be prohibited.
Chocolate Liquor is a paste-like mass made of pure cocoa solids and cocoa butter. It is only made from cocoa beans and does not contain any alcohol. The word ‘liquor’ usually refers to alcoholic drinks made from grains, fruits, or vegetables. However, the word ‘liquor’ comes from Latin and originally referred to any liquid, so chocolate liquor is called that because it (often) refers to liquid chocolate.
