Get Ready Because Gin And Tonic Easter Eggs Are Back!

They’re back! The gin-eous Easter egg invention from Just Bliss and Settlers Spirits is returning to bring us all another sugary, boozy Easter!

You may have had an inkling that the Glam Adelaide team has a soft spot for gin – especially gin made right here in South Australia by craft gin makers. So you can only imagine our excitement when we discovered that Just Bliss Chocolates (who are tucked away on Gawler Place between Rundle Mall and North Terrace) have ONCE AGAIN collaborated with Settlers Spirits (the geniuses behind Pink Gin and more) to create Gin and Tonic Easter Eggs.

 

 

It turns out that this isn’t even the first time they’ve played with these amazing flavours together. Just Bliss Chocolates also sell both milk and dark chocolate gin & tonic truffles in gift boxes – so you can treat your friends year round! How considerate of them (and how wickedly indulgent for us!)
The G&T truffles first came to be when they were inspired by one of Just Bliss Chocolate’s Gin loving employees Erin. Since Erin joined the team 2014, she blessed them with lots of new chocolate ideas, most of them centred around the use of Gin!
As a parting gift (when Erin finished her Nursing degree and moved on to a new career) Just Bliss decided to make a batch of G&T chocolates for her (a move for which we thank both Erin AND Just Bliss).
Being a South Australian small batch chocolatier – Just Bliss wanted to use a local SA Gin. They were lucky to be able to select from a great range of local Gins, and ended up choosing Settlers Rare Dry Gin based on its flavour profile. Settlers make their Gin from grapes grown on the McLaren Vale property instead of traditional grain.
The G&T truffle centre is made from an emulsion of chocolate (they use couverture for its high cocoa butter content and smooth mouthfeel) and cream. For an even creamier mouthfeel they then whip butter into it. Are you drooling yet?
Local SA honey is used together with lime and lots of splashes of gin. Just Bliss then hand decorate the outer chocolate shell with cocoa butter splatter which needs to be done at 32 degrees to ensure the splatter effect sets well and remains vibrant.
As the G&T truffles are one of Just Bliss Chocolate’s best sellers, they decided to make them available in an Easter egg.  The G&T Egg includes 10 G&T truffles nestled in a 100 g half Easter egg hand wrapped in foil. Available in either milk or dark chocolate and retailing for $39.
Sounds like just the treat we need to survive this Easter (and our sugar laden, wild children).
If you’re after something more traditional, team at Just Bliss like to create chocolates with colour. Their signature range is their Couture Collection truffles. Hand decorated with cocoa butter they are little morsels of edible art.
