Review:

Dessert by name and dessert by nature: naughty but nice.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2002 at Hush Restaurant in London, England. Hush's recipe lacked three of the essentials in a Black Forest Gâteau: kirsch, cherries and chocolate. Hence, on 28th March 2022, I created the recipe above. Hush's original Black Forest Gâteau recipe:
60 ml Vodka
22.5 ml Chambord liqueur
22.5 ml Crème de fraise
7.5 ml Crème de cassis
22.5 Cream
