Pucker-Up with Wolfgang Puck's New Valentine's Cocktail: the Red Velvet Martini

Master Chef, Wolfgang Puck and Spago Beverly Hills’ Executive Pastry Chef Sherry Yard introduce The Red Velvet Martini, their latest cocktail drink just in time for Valentine’s night. Wolfgang Puck’s new Double Blend Mocha Organic Cold Brewed Iced Coffee is the secret ingredient along with Vodka, Chambord, and fresh raspberries. Double Blend Mocha provides a decadent flavor base as it’s made with bold, rich espresso and Viennese chocolate.

“My iced coffees, initially inspired by our pastries and crème brûlée, are a guilt free pleasure because they are only 120 calories, organic, made with a cold brewed process” says Wolfgang Puck. “All the coffee flavors like Vanilla Fusion, Double Blend Mocha, Crème Caramel and Cafe Au Lait add that extra special pizzazz to holiday deserts, shakes and drinks.”

Here is Wolfgang’s recipe for The Red Velvet Martini introduced at Wolfgang Puck at the Hotel Bel-Air in Beverly Hills, California:

· 2 oz Wolfgang Puck’s Double Blend Mocha Organic Cold Brewed Iced Coffee (Very cold)
· 1 ½ oz Vodka
· ½ oz Chambord
· 3 Fresh Raspberries

Muddle the raspberries and put all ingredients in a Martini shaker and shake well for 10 seconds, strain, pour into your favorite Martini glass and have a Happy Valentine’s Night.

All four flavors are now available in The Fresh Market Stores, The Natural Food Section of Kroger, Rice Epicurean Markets, Fry’s, Dillons, Kings Sooper, Smith Food Stores, Henry’s Farmers Markets, select Whole Foods Market, CVS, and Bristol Farms Stores , Jimbos in California and Morton-Williams, Amish Market, Westside Markets and Garden of Eden in Manhattan. http://www.wolfgangpuckicedcoffee.com/
