Black Forest Shooter Recipe

  • 2 teaspoons chilled white creme de cacao
  • 2 teaspoons chilled Balaton or Morello cherry juice
  • 2 teaspoons chilled heavy cream
  • 1 (1 ounce) square chocolate (not unsweetened) for shaving
  • Special equipment: a 2-oz shot glass
  1. Put creme de cacao in shot glass. Hold a regular teaspoon (not a measuring spoon) upside down over liqueur (spoon should be at a diagonal, with only the tip touching the liqueur), then gently pour cherry juice over curved part of spoon to float it on top of creme de cacao.
  2. Using a clean, dry teaspoon, gently pour cream into glass in same manner, creating a third layer. Shave some chocolate over cream using a vegetable peeler.
