Start the weekend off right with these chocolates and cocktails

The patio umbrella’s coming out, the flower pots are lookin’ fine and the barbecue’s getting fired up.

It’s time for some serious relaxing!

This weekend, enjoy a few fresh chocolates and try some original cocktails inspired by and created specifically for Lemon Blackberry Ganache, Pear Lemon Caramel and Raspberry Balsamic Truffle.
