Newly married bartender Sam Wong from Neon Pigeon has just the perfect cocktail to impress your potential other half.
1 dark chocolate block
50ml Daron Calvados
5ml dry vermouth
2 dashes Aphrodite chocolate bitters
3 dashes Indian rose water
1 large ice block
optional: engagement ring
- Make chocolate ball by melting dark chocolate and spooning into an ice ball mould. Leave in freezer for a few hours or overnight.
- Place the rest of the ingredients into a rocks glass except ice and stir to incorporate.
- Add a large block of ice and stir for 2 minutes (about 120 rotations). Discard ice.
- Add frozen chocolate ball to the drink and serve. If you wish, you could also hide the engagement ring within the ball, to be discovered when the ball melts.
