The after dark iced chocolate

Lewis Road Creamery asked me to come up with a recipe using their new liqueur, and this is it.

For the chocolate ganache sauce:

150g dark chocolate, cut into chunks

150g cream

Gently melt the cream and chocolate together in a small saucepan, on a low heat. Remove before the chocolate is fully melted and stir constantly until you get a glossy sauce. Use immediately.

For one cocktail:

4 tbsp ganache sauce, plus 1 tbsp to finish

Ice

30ml vodka

90ml LRC chocolate liqueur, chilled

Drizzle liquid cream, chilled

Drizzle 4 tbsp ganache sauce around the inside of your glass. Fill glass with ice.

Method

Add vodka and chocolate liqueur and stir with a swizzle stick.

Drizzle in a little liquid cream, then drizzle over 1 tbsp ganache. Garnish with a flower if it takes your fancy, and enjoy!
