I found this German rye locally and fell in love with it. I wanted to try it in my favorite drink Remember the Maine and decided to swap in (mostly) German ingredients.
In place of Cherry Heering I poured a Black Forest cherry liqueur, then for absinthe used Kümmel. At that point I wanted to embrace the Black Forest cake profile so added chocolate bitters and another kirsch just enhance the cherry taste.
The name of course is Black Forest in German. Das ist gut.
