Tiramisu Martini

10 May Tiramisu Martini - Featured

For Mother’s Day this coming weekend, we at Cham Cham Guide decided to make a drink just for the moms. Now, the only mom we can speak for is the one that brought us up so, drawing from that inspiration, we made a list of things she likes and things that would go well in a drink. After ticking many pork related things off the checklist, it came down to coffee and cakes.

Now, put coffee and cake together and you have tiramisu. And who doesn’t just love tiramisu?

The absolute best tiramisu I have had to date was at this quaint little Italian restaurant in Plaza Damas called Sure Pizza. This little establishment was run by an all-the-way Italian chef, Paolo who would, on good days, serenade his patrons from beyond his open kitchen. Everything about that place was magical. His handmade tabasco sauce… His zuppa di pesce… His pate and crackers… And the tiramisu just absolutely soaking in coffee liqueur…

I will be eternally bummed that the place closed down. Sigh.

Our Tiramisu Martini tastes like a thoroughly well soaked tiramisu. A good balance of coffee and sweetness while the Irish Cream gives a nice smoothness to the drink without the creaminess.

OK, to start with, what you’ll need to make a Tiramisu Martini is creme de cacao, coffee liqueur, vodka, Irish Cream, vanilla essence, and crushed ice.

The martini glass rim requires icing sugar, cocoa powder, and instant coffee.

So, of course chocolate eggs are a derivative of an age-old tradition, just like every other holiday we modern day folk celebrate. But even so, so what? I say it’s all in good fun. We could use more excuses to make a fuss over.By the way, have you people seen these series of videos called How It’s Made? Check out how chocolates are made.

OK, enough with the educational videos! Let’s mix some booze! In commemoration of Easter, I present to you the Chocolate Raspberry Dream.

The Chocolate Raspberry Dream looks great for an afternoon tea-party, though the taste can be a tad bit strong for the day. It’s not a very sweet cocktail as the only sweet ingredient is the crème de cacao. The raspberry taste is mild giving a hint of a sour note while the crème de cacao adds a fragrance.
