Serves 2 in an 8 fl.oz. glass

Ingredients :

150g. White Chocolate
150ml. Whole Milk
50ml. Double Cream
4oz. Maple Syrup
2 shot of Espresso
1 shot of Grand Marnier
20g. Pistachios
1/4 tsp. Fleur De Sel

For the topping :
Using a pestle and mortar crush the pistachios and add the fleur de sel, mix well.

For the beverage: (using an espresso machine)
To create the drink with a nice sexy foam, in my opinion only using a steamer coffee machine or using cafetière.

Using a clean steaming jug with a thermometer attachment, mix the milk, double cream, maple syrup and fine grated white chocolate.
Steam the mix using the espresso machine, aerate the mix continue to slowly pull the jug downwards, when the temperature reaches 65 C, turn off the steamer.
Pull 2 shot of espresso.
Put 1 shot of espresso and half shot of Grand Marnier in each serving glass,
Fill the serving glass with the steamed mix white chocolate milk, use a spoon to scoop the foam.
Serve with crunchy fleur de sel pistachio on top.

If you are using a cafetière and mocha pot
In a clean pan, mix the milk, double cream, maple syrup and fine grated white chocolate, stir and simmer until the white chocolate has dissolved when the mix has reached boiling point (when the first bubbles show) take off the heat.
Transfer into a cafetière and aerate the mix with the plunger of the cafetière (plunge up and down repeatedly).
Use a mocha pot for espresso.
Put 1 shot of espresso and half shot of Grand Marnier in each serving glass,
Fill the serving glass with the steamed mix white chocolate milk, use a spoon to scoop the foam.
Serve with crunchy fleur de sel pistachio on top.

A Spoonful of sweet, sexy and silky white chocolate foam and crunchy salty pistachios is just heaven.
