A couple of new cocktails using La Maison Fontaine® Chocolat and La Maison Fontaine® Verte.

Miam Flip

Miam is French slang for 'yum', a fitting reference to the reaction of the consumer after their first taste.


35ml La Maison Fontaine® Chocolat
15ml dark over-proof rum
10ml Combier l'Original Triple Sec
1 dash orange bitters
1 medium egg or 15ml double cream
Pinch of salt

Method: Shake all ingredients & strain into stemmed glass without ice.

Garnish: Grated nutmeg


La Maison Fontaine® Verte – Cobbler Verte

A cobbler was originally a wine glass full of fruit, which evolved into the muddling of the fruit into the drink. This cobbler combines pepper notes with old friends strawberry & orange.


30ml La Maison Fontaine® Verte
10ml SW4 London Dry Gin
25ml strawberry purée
15ml fresh lemon juice
15ml fresh orange juice
10ml sugar syrup (to taste)
5 basil leaves

Method: Add first 6 ingredients into glass & press basil leaves to bruise skin. Squeeze & drop into glass 1 lemon wedge & one orange wedge. Press the wedges with a muddler to release oils. Top with crushed ice & churn. Crown with crushed ice and fruit section.

Garnish: Basil, strawberry & a slice of lemon & orange.
