While the Tandem Tasters were judging at the Oregon Chocolate Festival in Ashland, Oregon, we came across Organic Nation Spirits. This is not what you might expect at a statewide chocolate festival.
In addition to Organic Nation Vodka tasting good, they made a delicious recipe of Organic Nation Vodka Raspberry Sauce which they poured over a great chocolate cake. Yummy. For this unusual pairing, they received Runner Up for the Non-Traditional & Innovative Use of Chocolate. Congratulations to them for being so creative.
Organic Nation Vodka Raspberry Sauce
10 ounces organic raspberries
2 tablespoons organic confectioners sugar
3 ounces water
1/8 teaspoon organic almond extract
1 ounce O-N vodka
Mise en Place (French, everything in place).
Bring raspberries, water and confectioners sugar to a light simmer.
Remove from heat.
Strain seeds if desired.
Cool and add almond extract and Organic Nation Vodka.
Enjoy over chocolate cake, ice cream, chicken cutlets or turkey medallions.
This was great and has many uses. Let us know how you liked it.
