Recipe Book: White Chocolate Liqueur
*Warning warning* totally endulgent cocktail alert – but it is Christmas so why not! Here’s one for those with a sweet tooth – we wouldn’t advise too many of these but one after dinner would be a lovely dessert.
60 grams good quality white chocolate
5-6 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/4 cup whole milk
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
180ml white rum or vodka
1. Roughly chop the chocolate and place it in a large heat-proof bowl. Set the bowl over a pot of barely simmering water, making sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the surface of the water. Heat until the chocolate has melted, stirring frequently.
2. Add the sugar and cream. Heat, stirring, until the sugar has dissolved. Add the rest of the cream and the milk, and stir until smooth.
3. Remove from the heat, and stir in the vanilla extract and rum or vodka. Let cool completely at room temperature, then refrigerate overnight.
4. Skim away any of the fat from the chocolate and cream that has risen to the top, and pour into a (very clean) bottle or jar. Keep refrigerated.
