With the cold season receeding we are approaching the last opportunities to go full cozy. Summer will bring fruity flavors, acidy juices and tart drinks but we still can weave in some of the heavier treats.
If you have ever seen the portfolio of syrups that are sold by Monin you have probably wondered how to incorporate a bunch of the flavored varieties into your creations. Today we spontaneaously decided to buy a tiny bottle of Monin Praline & Hazelnut syrup.
Our first experiment is something decadent. I’m a big fan of artisanal chocolate. I love Läderach from Switzerland or Domori from Italy. I could indulge into truffles and pralines daily, from nuts over whiskey filling to brittle.
To follow on these desires, we have come up with the Orange Truffle, an after dinner drink that can easily replace a dessert. With a combination of warming cognac and the sweetness of the praline & nut syrup it gets pushed to the extreme by a hint of cacao, just to be rounded off with the complementing orange flavors. Enjoy together with a nice piece of dark chocolate!
