Booze up your Hot Chocolate

TAGS:undefined

This week, we officially survived the so-called Blue Monday, the infamous “most depressing day of the year”. However, winter is here to stay, and every one of us could use some comfort food after spending the day fighting off polar winds, enduring dark afternoons and surviving icy rains. This is where our “ameliorated” hot cup of chocolate come into play. 

The sweet-powered: Caramel Lush

To start this list, I suggest a delicious caramelised hot chocolate. Its sweet flavours will make you forget about the long day you just had. Just sit down and relax.  

Ingredients

  • Achieving the caramel flavour is the tricky part. The easiest way is to use flavoured vodkaliquor or cream.
  • Alternatively, combine dark rum and caramel syrup for a more intense taste. 
  • Cocoa powder
  • Milk
  • Whipped cream

Preparation

After pouring the milk and cocoa powder into the pot, bring to a simmer. Make sure the ingredients are perfectly mixed. Add the syrup and the alcohol. Top it off with whipped cream.

Hot tip: add some toffee or hazelnut sprinkles on the whipped cream for a gourmet hot chocolate!

The fresh twist: Minty Bomb

This refreshing hot chocolate will make you want to live in winter for the whole year just to have the excuse of the cold to drink it again and again. This the perfect warm drink for your Sunday morning to enjoy on the sofa before starting the day. 

Ingredients

Preparation

Place the milk and cocoa powder in the pot, then, bring to a simmer and mix. We recommend replacing the cocoa powder with melted bitter chocolate. Add the mint schnapps and whipped cream. Your hot chocolate is now waiting for you!

Hot tip: To boost the mint taste of your preparation use some crushed mint candy or fresh mint leaves.

The fruit-infused: Soothing Orange

Discover this yummy citrus-flavoured hot chocolate. Admittedly, you are not going to drink it for the vitamin C but savouring it is likely to be the perfect way to spend the evening on your couch while the rain is pouring outside.

Ingredients

  • Typically, Cointreau and Grand Marnier are the recommended alcohol. But do not hesitate to be creative! There are many creams, liquors and bitters available. 
  • Orange zest
  • Cocoa powder
  • milk
  • Whipped cream

Preparation

Prepare your hot chocolate by warming and mixing together the milk and the cocoa powder or melted chocolate (go for a dark one!). You can also add some orange zest in the pot for a more intense taste. Once your chocolate is at the right temperature, add the orange liquor. Add some whipped cream and sprinkle the orange zest on top. 

Hot tip: use a small slice of candied orange or additional melted dark chocolate to top the whipped cream and create a stunning look.

The exotic-longing: Coco Delish

Bring back some of that exotic summer flavour in your dreary winter with this coconut-tasting hot chocolate! It will remind you of the great cocktails you drunk last summer.

Ingredients

  • Again two possibilities exist, the first (and our favourite) consists of dark Rum and coconut milk.
  • Another possibility is to use flavoured vodkarum or liquor and milk.
  • White chocolate
  • Toasted coconut sprinkles
  • Whipped cream

Preparation

Depending on the option you chose, put the melted white chocolate in the pot with the milk or coconut milk and bring to a simmer. When you reach the desired temperature, add the liquor and the whipped cream. Add coconut sprinkles generously to garnish. 

Hot tip: to make your cocoa even more savoury, add some cardamom or vanilla extract.

The islands of Azores and Madeira, a beautiful land of wines

 TAGS:undefined

Madeira wine, or just Madeira, is also known as Vinho Generoso madeirense or Torna-Viagem and is produced on the island for more than 500 years.

Departing ships loaded with wine that was considered of lower quality, enabled them to discover the power and consequences of longer fermentation. The wine was stored in the cellars of sailboats for more than a year and the heat in the tropical region along with the long journey across sea proved to transform ordinary wine into excellent nectar.

When fermentation went on to developing, we see the forming of 2 types of techniques that are the originates from the 2 kinds of wine that were used. The canteiro wine, fermented in barrels stored in the highest part of the storages in the early years, and moved further down as it ages (you can drink from the 4th year) Stoving wine, it is heated to 55 ° C for 3 months and can be consumed from the 3rd year. In the Azores, during the XIX century, stove wine was a strong-tasting drink similar to Jerez in taste and color.

Madeira is a fortified, enriched wine and with an alcoholic strength between 17º and 22º. It remains in oak barrels through a slow oxidation process to concentrate the wine. This type of wine is divided into Blend, wines of varying age, with an average of 10 years of the same strain, and Colheita (Added), wines from the same vintage and a single strain. They can be taken from 4 years, Vintage, aging at least 20 years and then must go through a test that determines the authorization to be bottled or not. These are wines of long age, high acidity, and freshness. You can find Vintage 1975 in perfect condition.

However, the fame of the island wines did not spread the same way from all the islands. TAGS:undefined

Wines from Azores – Past Vino (strain Malvasia) and dry wine – produced on the island of Pico, undergoing a process similar to that of Madeira, where fermentation was interrupted by adding brandy, as with the Port wine production of the wines of the Azores, it is not considered to be of lower quality than Madeira.

Probably not too many data exist on the subject, for a long time it was believed that the wine practice was limited to the islands of Pico and Graciosa but, in reality, all were devoted to the cultivation of vineyards. Although they were islands struggled with difficult weather and very stony conditions as a result of volcanic eruptions in the Azores, it still has produced very strong vines.

In the mid-nineteenth century, the islands suffered from an aggressive outbreak of powdery mildew, forcing the replacement of strains, such as Verdelho (Verdejo white), and instead, some American vines were planted (especially the Isabela strain, which today banned in Europe because of its high content of methanol).

The elaboration of spirits was considerably increased and multiplied in flavors from the molasses brandy on St. George Island, the dark spirit of Terceira Island and red, peach loquat and fig, from Pico Island.

The recovery of white wine was gradually achieved, and one of the examples of the history of wine in Azores is the Cooperative Winery of Graciosa Island.

In Madeira, the rum – Madeiran rum – white and aged, has won a central role. To learn more, one can visit the Engenho do Porto da Cruz, which is a museum center, near Casa del Ron, where you can take some exceptional reserves.

Among the strains traditionally used in the islands we can find:

Malvasia – One of the first stocks that reached the islands of Azores and Madeira during the first half of the fifteenth century. With this strain produces a sweet wine, with aroma similar to nuts and honey flavor notes. A perfect match with cheeses and chocolate.

Verdelho – a semi-dry wine, flavored ripe pineapple and tropical flavor is developed. Good pairing with soft cheeses and wines. This strain is common in the two archipelagos.

Cercial – With this strain one produces a dry wine, with citrus aromas and caramel. It is indicated as an aperitif or combined with nuts or olives. This strain is used in the two archipelagos.

Boal / Bual – The result is a semi-sweet wine with the aroma of honey and caramel flavor. It is indicated to combine with fruits, cheeses and desserts. Azores strain of high quality and used in the two archipelagos.

Black Ink – Some say that this strain is the result of crossing Pinot noir with Grenache (Garnacha). In Spain it is known as Negramoll and occurs mainly on the Canary Islands. Combine with vegetables, rice and white meat.

The best rum for your mojito

 TAGS:undefined

Mojito cocktail is one of the most successful drink, and certainly the most famous of those made with rum. However, neither cocktails experts agree on ingredients: lemon or lime, white or brown sugar, mint or peppermint, sparkling water or tonic, and the list keeps going.

Not to mention the new variants of mojito with strawberry, coffee liqueur, chocolate, watermelon, and more… the possible combinations are almost endless, so how to choose the best rum for your mojito?

The first thing to think about is what kind of “feeling” are you trying to achieve with your mojito, do you want a refreshing mojito? A sweet one? Maybe sour taste? A hot drink? The ingredients and flavors mark the style of your mojito along with the type of rum you choose since it is the main ingredient. Here we suggest some rum references according to the taste of your cocktail:

Bitter Mojito: this is the kind of drink where strong aromas and flavors are dominant such as the tonic, lime or lemon peels or heavy liquors like tequila. These are the most original mojito because it is not the classical idea of mojito, is that touch of bitterness that makes it a much more refreshing combination. In this case, if you want to accentuate the bitter taste, you should use a very light white rum with aromas, such as Bacardi rum. Note that the rum is one of the sweetest spirits and that, therefore, any rum flavor could make your drink to lose its bitterness.

Sugar Mojito: these mojitos are obviously made out of sweet flavors and tastes, like syrup or mashed red fruit (from strawberry to pomegranates), chocolate, passion fruit, figs or even a splash of sweet cava. However, these drinks may result cloying if you prepare them with a sweet rum: in fact, they need a strong rum to keep its consistency. One of the best options is the Barceló, a very deep a nuanced rum.

Acid Mojito: the original mojito is an exceptional combination of the bitterness sparkling water or soda and the acidity of lime or lemon. It is fresh and fun. In the case of an acid mojito, you can change the sparkling water for regular water, or add chunks of pineapple, grapefruit, and other acidic tropical fruit. It is recommended to use in this case a sweet rum instead of using sugar. An ideal candidate is the Bacardi Limon, specially designed for such mixtures.

Spiced Mojito: this type of mojitos are highly valued in non-Hispanic countries, where the most famous rums are from the old –or actuals– English or French colonies, like Bermuda, Martinique or Jamaica. You can use pepper, juniper, ginger or coffee instead of mint and marinated citrus juices. In these cases, you should go with Captain Morgan rums that will for sure be your best friend to surprise your guests or beloved ones

These are just some of our suggestions, but if you are looking to enjoy a traditional mojito, here are 2 rum references to make an authentic one, enjoy!
