In celebration of Chocolate Week that takes place from October 13 to 19, One Square, a vibrant bar and restaurant located in the heart of Edinburgh, is offering a chocolate orange afternoon tea experience during October and November.
This indulgent afternoon tea showcases a range of sweet and savoury bites all featuring a delicious combination of chocolate and orange twists, served with a choice of enveloped or loose leaf fine teas and infusions that are traditionally prepared at the table.
Guests can start with assorted sandwiches with fillings such as orange and thyme poached chicken, before sampling the exquisite chocolate pastries including Manjari chocolate orange cupcakes and Guanaja chocolate and orange doughnuts. For the traditionalists, there are three varieties of freshly-baked scones that are served with Devonshire clotted cream alongside a selection of preserves and Ashanti chocolate and orange curd.
To further delight all chocoholics, the gin experts at One Square bar have created a chocolate orange Martini to accompany this afternoon tea. This chilled beverage features Sloane’s premium Dutch gin which is stirred with Cointreau and crème de cacao blanc until ice cold, then served straight up in a chilled martini glass and garnished with an orange twist.
The chocolate orange afternoon tea experience will be served daily in One Square – which has lovely views of the castle – between 2.30pm and 5.30pm from October 1 until November 30. It costs £23 per person (£30 with the chocolate orange Martini).
