What happens when you combine the sweetness of chocolate with the richness and depth of coffee? What if you next add in the sugary sweetness, almond tinged flavor of the maraschino cherry? You will have created a flavor explosion worthy of any great love affair, that's what! In celebration of Valentine's Day, we have prepared just such a treat. Enjoy!
Here is my take on a traditional Kirsch au Café, a delightfully refreshing summertime cocktail with quite the kick! The recipe works particularly well with TheQueenBean.com Espresso Joe. This complex creamy blend has notes of dried cherries, and charred oak -- a perfect compliment to the cherry brandy and cognac. Enjoy!
