The Velvet Goldmine is a blend of Amedei Porcelina chocolate, English lavender and Tahitian vanilla organic ice cream, caramelized bananas and Belgian truffles.
Enter Rémy Martin’s Louis XIII Cognac to the Mix
The star of the Velvet Goldmine is one ounce of Rémy Martin’s Louis XIII cognac which is mixed with the above ingredients along with Bacardi Reserve Limitada rum, 15-year Drambuie whiskey and 15-year-old Speyside malt whiskeys. The concoction is topped with edible 23K gold leaf.
