The Black Forest

Designed to put the Mr Black at the centre whilst using the flavours of a classic Black Forest Gateaux to accent its profile. Cherry Brandy brings lighter cherry notes while Balsazar Red Vermouth adds a deeper layer of natural red fruit flavours. The Amaro Montenegro herbal sweetness accentuates the chocolate flavours of the Mr Black while Courvoisier adds that archetypal boozy hit at the bottom of the gateaux. A maraschino cherry drenched in syrup is a must of a garnish and worth stirring with if you want to add a little extra sweetness. It’s an elegant dessert cocktail with simplicity and depth of flavour.

  1. I’m in Portugal and a traditional liqueur is Ginja – works beautifully as the cherry brandy in this Winter Warmerland of a cocktail
