Being French, we couldn’t leave Moncton without paying a visit to the Magnetic Hill Winery. The shop is overlooking the valley and the view is stunning. But we’re not here only for the view. We had the priviledge to be one of the first to taste the Maple wine of the winery. A succulent dessert wine named after the river nearby: the Chocolate River. Obviously, this wine was made for our purpose. And it ended up being a perfect match with Madagascar organic chocolate to make a delightful and gourmet cocktail for chocolate lovers.
Ingredients (2 glasses):
- 70 g dark chocolate 70% organic
- 50 g sugar
- 15 cl water
- 25 cl Maple wine
- 6 + 2 blackberries
- 1 tablespoon of cream
- Crushed ice
Put the glasses in the freezer for 1 hour.
In a pan, melt the chocolate on low heat with the water and sugar. Leave to cool. Once the chocolate syrup is cold, mix it in a shaker with the Maple wine and 1/3 of crushed ice. Mix it well. Mash the blackberries and mix with cream. Pour the cocktail in 2 glasses and carefully pour blackberry cream on top. Decorate with a fresh blackberry.
