A Tale Of Cocktails #28

Black Forest


1/2 cup mik
1 oz chocolate liqueur
1 oz amaretto

Taste: 7
Look: 4
Cost: 8
Name: 5
Prep: 9
Alcohol: 3
Overall:  6.2

Preparation: Pour milk into a Collins glass and add in ice and alcohol.  Stir and serve.

General Comments:  Oddly, this doesn't taste nearly so much like a black forest cake than the chocolate hurricane did.  If anything, it's more of a liquid chocolate battenburg cake.  That's hardly a bad thing, of course, but it does mean the name loses points for accuracy.  The bigger problem of course is the drink looks kind of boring, and the taste doesn't really make up for that.  It's all so depressingly average.
