Hazelnut Alexander

Hazelnut Alexander

This is another brand-new cocktail created by the talented Ben Morley. It is a twist on the Brandy Alexander, using our Hazelnut Vodka. This has been created for Christmas and those who love both chocolate and raspberries. It is a rich warming cocktail, which provided a lovely fuzzy feeling. It does use double cream, therefore those who are lactose intolerant should seek a plant-based alternative cream.

Ease of Making: Easy, amend quantities as needed.

Glass Type: Coupe or Nika Nora.

Taste: It was almost like having a Cadbury fruit and nut bar! Delicious.

 Recipe:

  • 5x Raspberries
  • 30ml Mozart Dark Chocolate Liqueur
  • 25ml Downton Distillery Hazelnut Vodka
  • 10ml Amaretto
  • 20ml Double Cream
  • Sea Salt (Pinch)

 Method:

  • Add all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker.
  • Add hand full of ice and shake until the shaker frosts on the outside.
  • Double strain using a handheld strainer into a coupe glass.
  • We used grains of paradise to garnish which added an extra layer of complexity (spice), but some grated chocolate works.

Alternatives:

  • Use any of the other Mozart Liqueurs.
  • Fresh raspberries or grated chocolate across the top as garnishes.
  • Replace Amaretto with Cointreau.
