Could #TeamCoco be anymore excited to bring some of our favourite things together: Easter, chocolate, and cocktails. It already sounds rather enticing doesn’t it?
With Easter just around the corner, why not adult up the occasion and celebrate with delicious chocolate based gin cocktails created by incredible world-class mixologists for the brand-new Scottish Gin Caorunn Collections Cocktail Book.
Our current fave gin cocktail is White Tales.
Created by Erzal Stiawan, at The Unlucky Cat Bar in Dubai
White Tales is created by using chocolate bitters, paired with cloudy apple juice and honey water with a splash of sauvignon blanc, this powerful mix of flavours perfectly balance the sweet and bitter with the botanical flavour of Caorunn Gin shining through.
White Tales Recipe
45ml Caorunn Gin
15ml Oat infused sauvignon blanc
15ml Honey water
20ml Eager Cloudy Pressed Apple Juice
2 dashes Bob’s Chocolate Bitters
Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice and fine strain into a chilled glass.
Garnish with edible flowers in a stemmed teacup. If a teacup isn’t available, a long stemmed fine glass works perfectly too.
