Last Saturday, we met the lovely Maria who owns Sweet Tooth and has come up with the, frankly genius, idea of cocktail brownies. When I asked Maria for the inspiration behind this she said, “Cocktails and brownies are 2 of my favourite things, I had to figure out a way to combine them.” That’s the sort of mission statement I can get behind!
We tried 2 brownies, the mojito and the pina colada. Maria added extra demerara sugar on the top of the mojito one to represent the sugar rim on the cocktail. I Iiked the mojito with its delicate hints of mint and lime but my favourite one was the pina colada, the chunks of pineapple made it super moist and the toasty strands of coconut added a lovely contrast. Pineapple and chocolate who would’ve thought they’d work so well together!
I really recommend getting down to Maria’s stall and checking them out, see below for details of where she trades:
Saturdays @ Hoxton Street Market, Hoxton (The Brownie Bar)
Hoxton Street Market is a classic East End market that dates back to 1687, close
to Shoreditch but with its own distinctly local flavour.
You can catch Sweet Tooth there under the flag of The Brownie Bar..!
Fridays @ North Cross Road Market, East Dulwich
North Cross Road is perhaps a slightly obscure choice for weekend shoppers.
However, it’s becoming something of a South London destination.
It’s something of a hidden gem and, due to the ongoing expansion plans by
Southwark Council, Will continue to grow in size and popularity.
