Crazy About Cacao

by Rosie Guest,

As if London Cocktail week, which has just been and gone, wasn't enough to indulge on, London Chocolate week is already upon us. Don't worry we have done the hard work for you, selflessy trialling every raw, dairy free, refined sugar free, cacoa packed treat we can get our hands on. 

With temptation all around we have singled out our favourite chocolate delights to give you that chocolate hit without the guilt!


1) IQ superfood chocolate is an all time favourite, particularly their plush peppermint flavoured bar. Chocolate? Check. Superfoods? Check. Tastes uncannily like 'after eight' mints? Check. What's not to like?


2) Despite the colder weather setting in for winter we are nuts about the Collobrative Chocolate Ice Cream. Ice cream in winter you say? Curled up on the sofa with a warm blanket, a good film, a tub of coconut collabortive and a spoon surpisingly works. Try it, we dare you!


3) We met the passionate owners of Cacao Crudo at Veg Fest a few weeks ago. They take great pride in sourcing the finest Italian ingreients and have sucessfully produced the best raw chocolate that we have tried! That is quite a claim, but if the shoe fits!

In celebration of London cocktail week, we have decided to inject a bit of health into your typical cocktails with some Radiance goodness. The genius bartenders at Avenue of St James have concocted some delicious combinations using our juices. The 'Deep Roots Bloody Mary' and 'Vital Greens Sour' come highly recommended. Try out the full menu at Avenue.

Meanwhile for you to try at home, here's an easy to follow recipe for a juicy cocktail:

'Sunrise Mojito'


Bacardi Rum and Chambord shaken together with juice of pineapple, orange and lemon, create a refreshing fruit fusion, poured over crushed ice and garnished with a sprig of mint. 


50ml Bacardi rum
15ml Chambord
A fresh juice made up of: 225g of pineapple, 150g of orange, 75g of lemon, 7.5g of ginger
A sprig of fresh mint
Slice of ginger root
Optional - add 7.5g of turmeric root to the juice mix or a pinch of ground turmeric


1) Wash and chop all the fruit so that it will fit into your juicer
2) Put the ingredients through your juicer, mixing the ginger with the pineapple and orange to ensure that you get the most from it
3) Mix the juice with the Bacardi rum and Chambord, using a cocktail shaker if you have one
4) Stir in some fresh mint, tearing the leaves to infuse the flavour
5) Garnish with a slice of ginger
6) Drink immediately. Enjoy!
