Dessert Shots

Le 15 Patisserie: Trendsetter Alert

Picture this, it's Saturday night and you are over at a friend's house for a dinner party. There are about eight of you there. The dinner was lovely, the wine was flowing and the company even better. Now you all decide to hit the town to maybe mingle a bit, dance a bit and of course flirt a bit :-). But dessert is yet to come...

No doubt we do love the traditional desserts from rich dark chocolate mousse to flour-less gooey chocolate cake, from strawberry cheesecake to a mango custard tart, but how about you mix it up a bit and try the dessert-shot-- a new innovative and slightly sinful concept to hit the dessert world-- excite your sweet-tooth and get in the mood to party!

I first heard about the concept of the dessert-shot from the new upcoming restaurateur in Manila, Philippines, Vinnie Genomal. He recently opened a restaurant in Manila called Toro. Toro's cuisine is part Mexican and part Japanese; Genomal cleverly named Toro for its double meaning: bull in Spanish and tuna belly in Japanese. Genomal wanted to introduce something different to the culinary word, something a little decadent, something a little spunky, something a little naughty.

Now take yourself back to the end of the dinner party where you and your friends need a little bit of an incentive to get you out the door....

Dessert Shot Menu:

1) Strawberry Cheesecake -
1 oz. Vodka
1/4 oz. Grenadine
1/2 oz. Orange Juice

(add a strawberry on top to make it
look pretty)

2) Apple Ala-Mode
1/4 oz. Apple Schnapps
1/4 oz. Apple Juice
1/4 oz. Soda

1/4 oz. Butterscotch schnapps
1/2 oz. Tequila

sauce on top)
