The Black Forest Gateau gets its name, not as you might expect from the wooded mountain range in the South West Germany, but from the specialty liqueur from that region known as Schwarzwälder Kirsch, which is distilled from tart cherries. This is the ingredient, with its distinctive cherry pit flavour and alcoholic content that gives the cake its flavour. Typically, Black Forest cake consists of several layers of chocolate cake, with whipped cream and cherries between each layer. Then the cake is decorated with additional whipped cream, maraschino cherries, and chocolate shavings. MONIN has recreated the exquisite taste of this gateau to enable you to create indulgent dessert drinks.

Beverage Innovation Directors Tips
MONIN Black Forest syrup is an amazingly delicious combination of dark chocolate and cherries with a creamy sweet aftertaste. This perfectly balanced flavour can be used alone to create indulgent coffee shop treats for your customers, such as Black Forest latte or cappuccino. Try it also in combination with other flavours such like Fig, Apricot for a warm and tasty after-dinner martini.
