This week is National Chocolate Week (9-15th October) so we all have the perfect excuse to indulge, and we have the perfect treat for you – a decadent chocolate cocktail.
One of our favourite bars, The Botanist, has created the ultimate treat for any chocoholic's out there. They teamed up with luxury chocolatier, Elizabeth Shaw, to create the cocktail of dreams: Chocolate Dust Dash in honour of National Chocolate Week.
So what's in this delicious cocktail? The Botanist and Elizabeth Shaw told us they started with some Baileys, before adding Creme de Cacao, Vanilla Gomme, finishing off with whipped creme, a sprinkle of chocolate dust and a sprig of fresh mint.
As the weather gets colder and the autumnal-winter nights start to draw in, we're all in need of a little pick me up and we highly recommend trying the Chocolate Dash while it's available.
I'm a lover of cocktails and there's nothing I enjoy more than trying new, exciting concoctions; and this is one I would definitely recommend. I couldn't personally drink this all night long, but after a busy day at the office, when I can't decide whether I want to gorge on something sweet or order a stiff drink; a glass of the Chocolate Dash is the answer. This cocktail is something that soothes the soul and will warm your bones before your tube journey home.
