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! Find the recipe below written and produced by Andy Clarke:
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.)
