Just when you thought Christmas couldn’t get any more luxurious, along came MONIN. Everyone’s favourite sugar syrup decided to go to town on decadent drinks and throw a salted caramel truffle cocktail into the mix. The best bit? They’re giving you the chance to win what you need to make this Salted Caramel Truffle Flip.
You probably recognise these candy-cute bottles from whenever you’ve had a shot in your latte. But it’s not just coffee that ramps up a gear when MONIN is added - these premium French syrups are also spot on in cocktails.
A bit of backstory - MONIN was founded in 1912 by 19-year-old entrepreneur Georges Monin. They’ve been in the game for over 100 years and MONIN has since become an internationally-acclaimed premium drinks expert. These guys know flavour, over 150 flavours in fact, and this epic line up of syrups has helped MONIN become the trusted choice behind the bar. Bartenders love them, so now you need to get hold of some syrup and play bartender in your kitchen this Christmas.
Salted caramel combined with Cognac, cream and a whole egg, the result is this naughty but very nice rich and velvety cocktail. Pour it into a crystal glass, dust with cocoa powder, garnish with an actual truffle, and hey presto - you just won gold at the dessert cocktail Olympics.
