Here at MyChocolate, we think we’ve found a winning combination – cocktails and chocolate! This wickedly indulgent soiree takes its inspiration from 1920’s America, channelling the Speakeasy theme with its Prohibition style cocktails. You’ll be plunged into a heady mix of mixology and chocolate alchemy, experiencing new and exotic flavours as our Master Chocolatiers bewitch with their rich chocolate blends. The Cocktail and Chocolate Making Workshop will give guests the chance to blend and shake their own cocktails and learn how to make chocolate as try their hand at combining rich chocolate flavours.
The workshop starts with a bang, in the form of Prohibition style eclectic cocktails combining intriguing flavours with classic recipes, making for taste twists that will really get you talking! You’ll be guided through the background and concepts of mixology and cocktail making, using bartending techniques (such as blending, muddling, shaking and straining) before leaving all you know about mixing traditional cocktails at the door to create some unique mixes. Exploring the science of tasting, you’ll discover how ingredients interact and complement one another in fascinating ways, with guidance from the masters and of course a lot of testing and tasting!
Fresh Truffle Making
After the cocktails, it’s time for the chocolate making fun to begin. Our Master Chocolatiers will take you through the master demonstrations, sharing the tricks of adventurous combinations using herbs, spices, essential oils and chocolate, before you dive into dipping smooth and rich dark chocolate truffles with decorations including white chocolate flakes, and caramelised hazelnuts. You’ll learn how to make irresistible chocolate flavours such as zesty Sicilian Lemon or chili and how to infuse a cheeky nip of alcohol into the mix.
