Brimming with ripe berries including Tasmanian blackcurrants and just a hint of chocolate, this cocktail recipe simply cries out to replace dessert (or at least accompany a fudgy brownie). Perhaps sip a few of these while you bake a sacrilegious-yet-delicious version of Black Forest Cake; sans the traditional cherries and kirsch but with added black fruits and cassis!
Inspired by Marionette’s Dry Cassis taking out the Champion Liqueur title at the 2019 Australian Distilled Spirit Awards, Captain Baxter‘s resident “cocktail slinger” Rebecca Beckett has created this Cheeky Gateaux cocktail recipe and kindly shared it with us today.
