Chocolates and cocktails surely make it on everyone’s list of favourite foods. Well, what if you can have both, together? That’s exactly what La Maison du Chocolat Master Chef, Nicolas Cloiseau, and Le Bar du Bristol Head Barman, Maxime Hoerth, has on offer this season—a mixological approach to chocolate. Stir up your summer with their adventurous and yummy cocktail (and mocktails)-based chocolates, with a creative twist.
The Summer Cocktail Collection perfectly blends the intoxicating flavours and colours from his unique cocktails at Le Bar du Bristol with Chef Cloiseau’s delectable chocolate creations. The result: a mouthwatering medley of juices, fruits, tea and dark chocolate ganache infusions with a milk chocolate twist.
The collection features,
MOF2—aptly named since both Hoerth, and Chef Cloiseau have been awarded, Meilleur Ouvrier de Franc, (the former as Barman 2011 and latter as Chocolatier 2007)—a dark ganache crafted without cream and infused with sweet orange and luscious pineapple accented with coconut.
Faubourg, features dark chocolate ganache, with a twist of milk chocolate, and infused with strong flavors of fresh passion fruit offset by notes of vanilla, mango juice and lemon honey.
Inspired by the signature cocktail of the Bar, So Bristol, is a milk and dark chocolate duo featuring fresh iced tea with grapefruit and lime zest along with sweet sour notes of elderberry.
Whereas Peacock showcases raspberries from Ardèche, along with a dash of milk and an infusion of verveine and spicy thai basil.
Lastly, the collection also has a cocoa- rendition of our favourite Italian cocktail, Bellini. The intense dark chocolate ganache, tempered by milk chocolate, holds the crispness and acidity of light effervescent champagne, revealing silky vineyard peach puree flavors subtly bolstered by peach liqueur.
The Summer Cocktail Gift Box is priced at HK$ 190 for Size 1 (8 pcs) and HK$ 530 for Size 2 (27 pcs).
