Cointreau Pearls

In an earlier episode of The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess, guest Jamie Boudreau demonstrated how to make flavorful spheres of caviar or pearls out of gelatin. Since then, Cointreau has put together an amazing kit using state of the art tools, ingredients and technique. They were kind enough to send a kit to Jamie so he could work his magic. As Jamie demonstrates, the addition of gold flakes to the pearls created with the Cointreau system add elegance to a simple glass of champagne.

Interesting stirring setup there. Fun to play with! The gold in the caviar is a lovely effect, but the shaker and the very small beakers don’t create caviar of the consistent beautiful roundness you achieved by hand.

The flakes look really cool ;) There are some other products out there that are also quite simple:—-WORLD-FIRST.html
I have the CocktailPro set that comes as some sort of chemistry set.. nice stuff to experiment with.
