I thought it was bad planning to have both Cocktail Week and Chocolate Week at the same time, but it does present the opportunity to match cocktails with specific chocolates. Chocolate Ecstasy Tours organised such an event in the new cocktail bar (Longitude 0°8′) in Le Méridien Piccadilly.
The matching was a bit hit and miss, but on the whole good fun and an excellent concept. We had a total of 7 cocktails and lots of canapes, which made this a very good deal. There was also the goodie bag with a selection of chocolate samples from Melt, Chocolate and Love and Paul A Young (who was among the Chocolatiers in attendance).
Chocablog, who were lucky enough to be involved in “helping out” during the preparation stage for this event, have a great post on it – love the photographs, see :-
