Lui's Lamington from Lui Bar, Melbourne VIC
Over 100 years later, the lamington is enjoyed across Australia and beyond and has inspired one of the signature cocktails served at Lui Bar & Vue de Monde, the Lui’s Lamington. The drink itself translates the traditional flavours – chocolate, coconut and raspberry – and the beloved texture into a cheeky and boozy nightcap, beloved by many!
Prior to making the drink, two preparations need to be made ahead of time. A lamington liqueur, made by sous-vide cold-infusion (72h) of vodka, dark chocolate liqueur and salted raspberries. This way of infusing encapsulates the fresh taste and aroma of the raspberries. And a cold brew coffee, using single estate Ethiopian beans, infuse for 24h. This will give some length to the final product and add body for the chocolate to shine through. Both preparations are then clarified by fine filtration.
- 50ml Lui’s Lamington Liqueur
- 60ml cold brew coffee
- Coconut cream, whipped
- Desiccated coconut
- Freeze-dried raspberries
- Add all ingredients into a mixing glass
- Fill with ice and stir for roughly 10 seconds
- Strain into chilled bodega rocks glass
- Carefully layer whipped cream on the top
- Sprinkle a lot of desiccated coconut over whipped coconut cream
- To garnish, add a teaspoon of freeze-dried raspberries in the centre
