Divine Chocolate Cocktails

Posted by in Chocolate Recipes on October 13 2010 | Leave A Comment

As part of my arduous training for Chocolate Week, I went to a little cocktail evening organised by the people from Divine Chocolate at the stylish 108 Marylebone Lane last week. We got to sample two creations from 108′s Head Mixologist, Viron Jaupi. One short and spicy, the other cool and creamy.

I had a fantastic evening and met some lovely, chocolatey people, but I was so engrossed in chatting to them, I only remembered to take this one photo. Of a cake.

I mean, it’s a very nice cake, but you want cocktails, right?

Luckily, the good folks at Luxe PR came through, and managed to prize the recipe’s out of Viron’s cold dead hand (Ok, that part’s a lie) in order that I can bring them to you here. I highly recommend giving them a go – particularly as it’s also London Cocktail Week!

Divine Chocolate Martini

  • 40ml Stoli vanilla
  • 20ml Crème de cacao
  • 20ml 70% melted Divine chocolate
  • 10ml gomme syrup

Method

Melt the chocolate and blend it with the spirit for 5min, then shake with cubed ice for a few seconds so the liquid loses strength and gains more flavour. Serve in martini glass with garnishes of Divine white chocolate shavings.
 

Spicy 108

  • 30ml Makers mark
  • 25ml crème de cacao
  • 1 teaspoon of Cocoa powder
  • ½ teaspoon of 85% melted Divine chocolate
  • 1cm of red chilli

Method

Chop a chilli and add a small pinch to the Makers mark spirit to marinade in a glass which sits in a hot water bath. Then double strain the mixture, pour it into the shot glass and add the melted chocolate stirring it until dissolved. Serve warm with a small layer of double cream to finish.
 
And if you really can’t be bothered to go to all the trouble of making your own cocktails, then I highly recommend heading over to 108 Marylebone Lane and getting them to make one for you. The martini is particularly good.

  1. I love chocolate and martini’s so this cocktail sounds divine!

  2. The nearest I’m going to get to this is a dash of baileys in my hot chocolate at the weekend! I will be drooling over the idea of a chocolate martini though for the rest of the week!

    The cake looks nice and the glass in the background reminds me of the best hot chocolate I have tried so far.

    I might try something at home. I only have brandy and Amaretto and Cointreau, but I think something nice can come out of that as well.

    Exactly – chocolate makes everything taste better, so why not just experiment!

  5. mmmmm, chocolate and cocktails, does it get any better?
    Nice couple of recipes, especially with the chilli in the spicy 108.
