Review:

Jay explained the origins of this drink as follows, "Whilst on holiday in the south of France this summer I discovered a fig tree growing on the riverside near our Chateau. During dinner, my family challenged me to make a drink with the figs. I raided the cupboards and found Martell VSOP, chocolate liqueur, tawny port and drinking chocolate. The rest is History! I hope you enjoy it!"

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2015 by Jay Decker at The Ivy in Chelsea Garden, London, England.
