Marzifun

Hello again,This time I will present to you the Marzifun.  I wanted to create a sophisticated cocktail that will be unique in terms of ingredients and to send a familiar yet a slightly different experience while drinking it.  I took inspiration from different marzipan candies made with fruits and chocolate and added mint to add freshness to the cocktail.I used port wine to bring the flavor of red fruit in a sophisticated way that compliments the flavors and creates a light and velvety drink.

You will need:
  • Marzipan 
  • Mint leaves
  • Port ( I used Sandeman )
  • Brandy de Jerez 
  • Lemon juice
  • Cherry vodka
  • Chocolate bitters
  • Egg white
To make the cocktail:
Put 2 spoons of marzipan and 8-10 mint leaves  in a mixing glass with 1 oz. brandy and muddle until most of the marzipan is dissolved in the brandy
Add
  • 1.5 oz. port
  • 0.25 oz. fresh lemon juice
  • 0.5 oz. cherry vodka
  • 2 drops of chocolate bitters
  • And an egg white from a small egg


Dry shake- add ice and shake again

Double strain to a coupe glass

Garnish with mint leaves and dark chocolate shaves made by holding the chocolate bar over the cocktail and using a peeler on it.

The combination between marzipan, red fruits and dark chocolate is amazing and well known.
I hope you will like my minty twist and the liquidize version.

Sorry for the delay,

Salut,

At your service
