1 Smart Sips' Black Forest Cake Latte pod

Ice cubes

1 oz of chocolate liqueur

1 oz of cherry liqueur or cherry vodka

Whipped cream

Fresh cherries, for garnish

Chocolate shavings or syrup, for garnish


Step 1: Brew Your Base

Start by brewing your Smart Sips' Black Forest Cake Latte pod using your Keurig brewer. Opt for a smaller cup setting to get a stronger coffee flavor, which will serve as the robust base of your cocktail. Allow the latte to cool slightly.

Step 2: Shake it Up

In a cocktail shaker, combine the brewed Black Forest Cake Latte with the chocolate and cherry liqueurs. Add a handful of ice cubes. Secure the lid on your shaker and shake vigorously for about 15 seconds. The goal is to chill the mixture thoroughly while slightly diluting it to enhance the drinking experience.

Step 3: Prepare Your Glass

Grab a tall glass and fill it with ice cubes. If you want to elevate the chocolate flavor, drizzle some chocolate syrup around the inside of the glass before adding ice.

Step 4: Assemble the Cocktail

Strain the shaken mixture over the ice in your prepared glass. The coffee should be frothy and chilled, with the chocolate and cherry flavors melding perfectly.

Step 5: Add the Finishing Touches

Top your cocktail with a generous dollop of whipped cream. Sprinkle over some chocolate shavings or drizzle additional chocolate syrup for a rich, enticing look. Garnish with a few fresh cherries on top.

Step 6: Serve and Enjoy

Serve and enjoy the luxe flavor of your Black Forest Cake Latte Cocktail. Each sip combines the deep richness of coffee with the sweet indulgence of chocolate and the bright zing of cherries, making it a perfect companion for any summer day.
