Inspired by the gift of bourbon three years ago, owner Robert Ludlow created one of our most popular seasonal truffle boxes, the Bourbon Box. He reimagined four classic bourbon cocktails into manly, dark chocolate covered truffles, all finished to mimic the traditional garnishes of the cocktails.
Now, Father’s Day is only 5 days away and Team Fleurir has you covered with our Bourbon Box. It’s a nine piece box for $24.95, which includes two of each “cocktail” truffles and one of our famous Salted Caramels. The cocktail truffles include:
Bourbon Ginger (Recipe Here) A two layer truffle made with a white chocolate, fresh ginger ganache and a dark chocolate bourbon ganache
Mint Julep (Recipe Here) Rye Bourbon ganache loaded with fresh mint and finished with crystallized mint
Old Fashioned (Recipe Here) Honey bourbon ganache layered with a burnt orange marzipan
Manhattan (Recipe Here) Brandied cherries and vermouth swirled into a rich bourbon ganache
These limited edition truffles are so delicious that we find that most people pick up one box for dad and one box for themselves. That’s a smart move because we only make them once a year! Give us a call so we can put a few boxes aside for you and your beloved dad. Fleurir Chocolates – 703-838-9055
