Berry Berry Mojito

A Little Holiday Cheer!

You'll Need:

½ oz Chambord Raspberry Liqueur

2 oz Bacardi Rum

Club Soda

Fresh limes- cut into quarters

Mint Leaves- pick off the stems

Sugar (see simple syrup recipe)

Peppermint stick

Method:

Simple Syrup- put equal parts sugar and water into a pot and cook on high, stirring the entire time, until it dissolves together. Do not boil.

First, muddle a pinch of mint, 3 lime wedges, and 1 oz of simple syrup in the bottom of a tall glass. When the ingredients are well pulverized, add ice to fill the glass. Add rum and Chambord. Fill the remainder of the glass with Club Soda and shake well. Pour shaken contents of glass into a clean glass and garnish with a peppermint stick.

Recipe of the Month

Profiteroles with Vanilla Ice Cream and Hot Chocolate Sauce Mirabelle

Here’s one of my favorite dessert recipes that is perfect for this festive season. Who doesn’t like hot chocolate sauce!

Cream Puffs

Ingredients:

4 ounces unsalted butter

1 cup water

1 pinch of salt

1 cup sifted all purpose flour

4 eggs

1 quart vanilla ice cream

Confectioners’ sugar for garnishing

Method:

Cut the butter into small pieces and in a saucepan combine it with the water and the salt. Heat the water over moderate heat until the butter is melted and then bring the water to a boil. Stir in the flour and continue stirring the mixture with a wooden spoon until it is thickened. Cook the mixture for a few minutes, stirring constantly. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle, turn the mixer to medium speed, and add the eggs, one at a time, beating until the eggs are incorporated into the dough.

Transfer the dough to a pastry bag fitted with the regular tip and pipe out mounds (about ½ tablespoon) on a sheet tray lined with parchment paper. Bake the cream puffs in a preheated 325 F. oven for 20 minutes, or until they are dry. Let them cool. Makes about 30 puffs.

Hot Chocolate Sauce

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk

1 ½ cups heavy cream

1 cup dark chocolate cut into bits (preferably a 70% chocolate such as Valrhona)

1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Method:

In a saucepan combine all the ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the pan from the heat and strain it through a sieve into the top of a double boiler. Keep the chocolate hot in the double boiler over moderate heat. If the sauce is too thick add more milk. If the sauce is too thin add more chocolate.

Assembly:

Cut each cream puff in half so you have a bottom and a top. Put the 3 bottom halves on each plate, add one scoop of the ice cream to each puff, and top the ice cream with the top halves. Sprinkle the cream puffs with the confectioners’ sugar and pour some hot chocolate sauce on top just before serving.

Serves 8 to 10
