Black Forest cocktail – another Easter cocktail

Black Forest Cocktail

Black Forest Cocktail

I have already said how lovely it was to receive a hamper full of goodies from Aldi to review for Easter. Even better that they gave cocktail and drinks pairings for each Easter treat.

Last night I sampled the dark chocolate marzipan egg that came in the hamper. At only 69p per 100g egg  I wasn’t expecting too much but the chocolate was properly dark and the marzipan dense and toothsome.

Marzipan Egg

The cocktail that was paired with the marzipan egg was a Black Forest Cocktail. Given the marzipan connection this might make a good cocktail to drink with a slice of Simnel cake too.

Cocktail ingredients.

45 ml Amaretto Liqueur

15 ml whiskey

20 ml double cream

20 ml morello cherry juice

ice cubes

Ground almonds, to rim the glass,

morello cherry and dark chocolate, to garnish.

How to

  • Using amaretto to wet the rim of the glass dip the rim of a Martini glass into ground almonds.
  • Place all the ingredients except the garnish into a cocktail shaker.
  • Shake with the ice.
  • Strain into the prepared Martini glass.
  • Garnish with a cherry and dark chocolate shavings.

I was sent a number of products to try by Aldi, I was not paid for this post and was not obliged to write a review positive or negative of these products.
