Ferrero Rocher Infused VodkaPosted: February 2, 2009
Many people just seem to have a thing for Ferrero chocolates…I guess its sort of a ‘classic’ product we see every now and then on TV commercials. This ball shaped chocolates are popular in countries such as Hong Kong, Malaysia, Canada and Brazil. It is also greatly used by the Chinese community as Lunar New Year gifts, as its gold wrapping represents ‘wealth’ in Chinese culture.
Well, I’ve decided to drop this little ‘balls of wealth’ into a jar of vodka. The result was some what better than expected after 5 days of infusion, as it produces a smooth and silky sensation to the palate with a good dose of hazelnut. So here’s the recipe:
2 nos Ferrero Rocher
1. Place the Ferrero Rocher chocolates with the vodka into an infusion jug for 5 days.
2. Agitate the content gently (turning it upside down once) everyday.
3. Once you’ve completed the 4 day infusion, strain the content with a cheesecloth into a deep dish baking tray.
4. Place the baking tray into a freezer and allow it to rest for the next 8 hours. This will help freeze up some of the fats and other particles. Strain this frozen particles and specks of ice. Place the infusion into a bottle and keep it chill.
5. The infusion will still look somewhat murky, and I’m still trying to find out how to make it clearer. So if you’ve manage to do so, do share your findings!
6. Serve as a chilled shot or in a Crystal Chocolate Martini.

*As the name suggest it produces a crystal clear martini with a smooth rich chocolaty tone.
