So i just received an email from my favourite drink supplier website:
It’s in relation to a great easter deal they have going on at the moment:
Mozart is an Austrian Liqueur brand and they supply 3 great flavoured chocolate liqueurs.
The first one is a black chocolate liqueur, perfect for any cocktail where you need a rich chocolate flavour (such as the ‘Honey Bunny’):
Alongside this is their ‘Gold original chocolate’ liqueur. this is a milk chocolate cream liqueur. Perfect in milky textured cocktails, offering a little bit of luxury this easter (Such as the fantastic ‘Cotton Tail’ cocktail):
And finally, this family of chocolate liqueurs would not be complete without a white chocolate version… This white version is a blend of bourbon vanilla (all the way from madagascar would you believe! as well as cream and cocoa butter) … All this combines for another luxurious chocolate liqueur…
these liqueurs are needles in a large haystack when it comes to good quality chocolate liqueurs. Reduced from their original prices of £17.49, £15.49, £15.49 (respectively) to a measly £14.93, £13.04, £12.82 (respectively). They are bargains waiting to be picked up, especially if you’re planning any Easter themed cocktail parties in the coming weeks. I get paid at the end of next week and I’m sure to pick up at least 1 of these (i’ll probably go for the Milk – Gold – version, but thats just my sweet tooth talking)…
I suggest you follow suit and give them a try, and while your at it feel free to share any of your favourite chocolate based cocktails in the comments below… I’ll start you off with 2 of my favourites:
50ml Mozart Gold Original Chocolate Liqueur
20ml Coconut cream
2 heaped teaspoons fresh marscapone cheese
Build the ingredients into a boston shaker glass, fill with ice, then shake until iced. Then Strain into a Martini cocktail glass (what else?!), and garnish with a half a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.
25ml Mozart Black Chocolate Liqueur
15ml Dark Spiced Rum (Kraken/Morgans is a good Choice)
10ml Amaretto Liqueur
10ml Caramel Sauce
this cocktail is for those with an overactive sweet tooth. Be warned it’s deliciously sweet, but the alcohol packs enough of a punch to keep you coming back for more.
Add the ingredients into a shaker filled with ice. shake well until very iced. Strain into a Coupe cocktail glass (just for a bit of added class), and garnish with a drizzle of honey or caramel, and gentle sprinkle of sea salt (optional)…
Both of these recipes were supplied by the email i received from http://www.thedrinkshop.com, and as such are not my own work. Still they taste bloomin’ gorgeous!
