Chocolate and Raspberry Martini
Tayport Distillery were thrilled to be featured on Love Your Weekend with Alan Titchmarsh. Our 1992 Raspberry Liqueur made its first TV debut on the show, in a delicious Chocolate and Raspberry Martini created and designed by Andy Clarke - who you can follow on all social media channels and on his website!
The Recipe! (For two cocktails):
100ml whole milk
100ml double cream
200ml Tayport Distillery 1992 Raspberry Liqueur
35g London Brick Chocolate (shaved, grated or finely chopped) OR use Pump Street drinking chocolate (from www.pumpstreetchocolate.com)
6 Freeze-Dried Raspberries (from www.fruitsfordrinks.com)
Pour the milk and cream into a saucepan, then add the chocolate.
Heat gently, whisking constantly until the mixture simmers and the chocolate has melted. You now have a delicious hot chocolate.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly for 5 minutes or so then pour in the raspberry liqueur and stir.
Allow to cool, then pour into a clean, sterilised container (once at room temperature) and refrigerate for at least an hour. (If making ahead of time, it will last in the fridge for 3 days – Just shake before drinking.)
If in a rush, once the drink has cooled for 10 minutes, pour into a cocktail shaker that contains ice. Shake for 20 seconds or so until the shaker is cold to touch.
Pour into Martini Glasses and decorate with three freeze-dried raspberries per glass. (Freeze-dried raspberries float better than real raspberries, and taste really vibrant.)
