Black Forest Cocktail

From the Table to the Bar: Gourmet Inspiration
Mixology, the delicate art of mixing flavors to create captivating cocktails, often finds its inspiration in the pleasures of the table. The transition from cuisine to cocktails has never been so tasty as with our latest creation: the “Black Forest Cocktail” and its non-alcoholic alter ego, the “Black Forest Mocktail”. Inspired by the rich and voluptuous Black Forest cake, these beverages transpose the complexity and indulgence of pastry into a liquid experience, where each sip is a journey.

Mixology: An Art Without Limits
This taste exploration proves that mixology has no limits when it comes to drawing inspiration from culinary classics. The possibilities are endless, and the invitation is extended to all cocktail creators to dare, to experiment and to let themselves be guided by the flavors that surround them, to transform each cocktail into a story, an emotion, a memory.

Black Forest Mocktail

Ingredients :

  • 0.5 oz cocoa syrup
  • 1.5 oz cherry juice
  • 2 oz sparkling water or tonic
  • Ice cubes
  • To decorate: a cherry and maple marshmallow

Instructions :


Q: Can you prepare the cocoa syrup in advance?
A: Absolutely, cocoa syrup can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator in an airtight container. This allows you to save time when preparing your cocktails and mocktails.

Q: Is there an alternative to cherry juice for the Black Forest Mocktail?
A: If you can't find cherry juice, you can substitute cherry nectar or even pomegranate juice to maintain some acidity and fruity sweetness. Each alternative will bring a different but equally delicious nuance to your mocktail.

Q: How do I serve these drinks at a party?
A: These drinks are perfect for a themed evening or a fancy dinner. To impress your guests, serve them with careful presentation, using elegant glasses and showcasing the artisan marshmallow as a decorative finishing touch.

Q: Is there a trick so that the marshmallow doesn't melt too quickly on the hot cocktail?
A: Although these recipes are designed to be served cold, if you want to experiment with a warm version of the mocktail, place the marshmallow on a small stick on top of the drink rather than directly in the hot liquid. This will allow the marshmallow to slowly melt and gradually add its sweetness to the beverage.
