Today’s Secret Recipe comes from Arrows restaurant in Maine. Arrows was the flagship restaurant of James Beard award winning chefs Mark Gaier and Clark Frasier. They served a delicious cocktail made with gin, red currant sorbet and cocoa-infused simple syrup. It’s a lively and complex drink.
To make cocoa-infused simple syrup, combine 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan over high heat; bring to a boil, and cook until sugar is dissolved. Stir in 1 1/2 teaspoons cocoa powder and let cool. Chill until ready to use.
I was losing my memory, focus – and my mind!
And then… I got it all back again.
