Luxury chocolatier Hotel Chocolat and UK favourite All Bar One have collaborated to create a collection of limited edition festive cocktails. We took a sneak peak, and can confidently confirm that if paradise for chocolate and cocktail lovers did not exist before, it certainly does now. This is one that we are deeming unmissable.
Launching on 16th November, just in time for 2021’s Christmas celebrations, the British premium brands will be releasing 4 incredible cocktails inspired by festive flavours and winter essence, and truly indulging in the season of decadence.
The cocktails are based on classic favourites but with delicious creative twists aided by Hotel Chocolat’s Velvetised™ collection that have been expertly developed from their initial chocolate cream offering. The silky-smooth liqueurs are rich and mouth-wateringly moreish – and dangerously easy to sip on.
The Chocolat Martini uses the Velvetised™ Chocolate Cream with Crème de Cacao and Havana Club Rum for a warming and powerfully deep flavour. There’s also the Clementine Chocolat Martini that introduces a satisfying citrusy twist with Salted Caramel & Clementine Velvetised™ Cream and Cointreau. The Mint Royale uses Mint Chocolate Velvetised™ Cream, vodka, and caramel syrup – it’s so very fragrant and festive, and also doubles up as the perfect digestif.
The Midnight Tiramisu is an overwhelming favourite. The dessert-style cocktail features Espresso Martini Velvetised™ Cream, Tia Maria, and Disaronno, and has a sensational texture that feels like liquid pleasure to even the most lukewarm of sweet-teeth. Calling all chocolate lovers to the bar - you’ll thank us later!
The brands are also running special cocktail masterclasses where you can learn how to create a selection of the festive menu, gain some mixology skills, and also have a few indulgences along the way.
It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
The exclusive collection will be available to order again and again (and again) from 16th November at All Bar One locations across the UK. The cocktails are priced at £9.95, and the masterclasses at £30. And remember – this is a limited time only treat, so don’t delay – decadence awaits!
