    Black Forest martini

    An indulgent cocktail inspired by the chocolate and cherry German dessert Schwarzwälder kirschtorte (Black Forest gâteau).

    Makes: 1 drink


    50ml crème de cacao
    25ml cherry brandy
    10-15ml crème de cassis

    Chocolate cream topping:
    25ml chocolate flavoured Irish cream liqueur
    100ml whipping cream

    10g dark chocolate
    1 glacé cherry


    1 To make the chocolate cream, whip the chocolate flavoured Irish cream liquor with 100ml of whipping cream until it is lightly aerated. It should still be a pouring consistency.

    2 Fill a martini glass with ice to chill.

    3 Fill your cocktail shaker three quarters full of ice.

    4 Add the crème de cacao, cherry brandy and crème de cassis.

    5 Shake vigorously for around 15 seconds to ensure that it is well mixed and well chilled.

    6 Empty your martini glass and strain your cocktail into the glass.

    7 Top with the chocolate whipped cream, grate over dark chocolate and garnish with a glacé cherry.
