Winter Christmas Cocktails - The Chocolate Rose

America Village Cocktails

For me Winter = Darkness, a good kind of darkness, a darkness that you can loose yourself in, re-new and contemplate. It is a time to embrace, we need this darkness before we can move into the Imbolc light.

A way that I have learnt to embrace the darkness is to make my circle smaller, withdraw a little, contemplate, rest and indulge. 

Indulge in many simple and un-complicated forms, such as food and drink - Sustenance.

If you feel like indulging in a little something at the end of your short day of light, embrace the darkness with an Apothecary Cocktail. 

'The Chocolate Rose' 

You will need:

  • 50ml of Spanish Brandy (any other light brandy will work).
  • 20ml America Village Apothecary Wild Rose Syrup.
  • Few drops of America Village Apothecary Raw Cocoa Nibs Tincture. 
  • Square of quality Dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa).
  • Ice.

Place all of your ingredients into a cocktail Shaker, Shake, Serve, strained into a Martini glass. Garnish with your Chocolate Square on the side.

Enjoy, Indulge and embrace the darkness.
