The Weekly Cocktail Recipe – Kensington Place’s ‘Aztec Cocoa’

By Jonathan Hatchman, Food Editor, @TLE_Food

Located in Notting Hill, Kensington Place first opened back in 1987. Having grown over the years, the restaurant is now a destination space that prides itself on relaxed and casual dining with a strong focus on fish and seafood. What’s more, there’s also a bar that serves some exciting cocktails.

Created especially for Christmas, this week’s recipe is for the Aztec Cocoa – a twist on Mexican hot chocolate that uses tequila, chilli, cinnamon, allspice, and rich dark chocolate.

70% cocoa dark chocolate, 100ml

El Jimador Blanco Tequila, 35ml

Homemade spice sugar syrup with chilli, 15ml
