Did someone say Chocolate??
Along with Cheese, Coffee and Red Wine – Chocolate has always been one of my favourite things, its one of those great ingredients that can differ hugely between different producers and origins.
On this taste test I was lucky enough to be able to try out Chocolate with a difference – this was Chocolate Liqueur called AMAZ-IN, a blend of Chocolate, cream and the finest Rum – but did it take after its name.
I first tried the liqueur on its own, it has a creamy texture with a great hit of great tasting chocolate. In fact I would happily drink this on its own, or poured over ice. I must refrain however as also want to try it in a few cocktails.
The First cocktail that just had to lend itself to a good quality liqueur such as this, had to be a Chocolate Espresso Martini.
I mixed 1 oz AMAZ-IN, 1 oz of Wild Knight Vodka and a shot of Espresso – Shaken with ice. This was a beautiful cocktail, which I made a second time also adding a shot of Espresso Liqueur as well. I liked both equally and it would be down to your individual preference of Chocolate over Coffee or vice versa.
The next cocktail I tried with The AMAZ-IN was a Chocolate Cherry Delight (Inspired by the Australian Chocolate bar Cherry Ripe)
This replaced the Vodka with a Cherry Vodka, the Espresso with Baileys and the Espresso Liqueur with a Cherry Syrup. This was a sweeter cherry flavoured cocktail.
The next cocktail I experimented with, was a My Chocolate Orange. A mixture of AMAZ-IN, Pink Gin from the English Drinks Co and a dash of Orange Juice, again shaken with ice.
I tried this first with a raspberry drink mix instead of orange, this was a bit too sweet and the wrong consistency. The orange Juice worked so much better – Triple Sec could be used if your hardcore!
My final cocktail with AMAZ-IN is a real winner!!
I received a sample of Nelsons Gold… a beautiful Toffee Vodka made by the guys over at Wild Knight Vodka.. by itself its a delight.. mixed with AMAZ-IN Chocolate Liqueur, Baileys and a splash of Milk it becomes an irresistible, delicious, give me another one cocktail!!!
