Nicolai Portelli shows you how to make Le Talbooth’s famous blackberry marzipan cocktail in our latest YouTube video.

The video was filmed for the Olive online magazine and we’re sure you’ll have worked up a thirst after watching how this delicious drink is put together!

This fabulous concoction combines Disaronno Amaretto, blackberry coulis and fresh lemonade and tastes great. You can visit our YouTube page today to see Nicolai in action by clicking here: Blackberry marzipan cocktail video.

Nicolai isn’t the only one impressing with his recipes though. Paul Blackman, Le Talbooth’s pastry chef for the past seven years, has also been featured in the magazine as he reveals the secret behind his delicious coconut and mango soufflé with Malibu.

Paul’s French-Caribbean-inspired dessert is one of our best sellers and his interview sees him talk about how he drew on his Barbadian roots to create this fabulous dish. Click here to read the full article.

Why not visit Le Talbooth today to sample both these treats? Or if you’d like to see our full menus, visit the Le Talbooth Restaurant webpage.
