Black Forest Hot Chocolate


4 servings:

2 cups / 470 ml milk of your choice
5 ounces / 140 gr dark bittersweet chocolate, chopped 
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/3 cup / 80 ml maraschino cherry liquid to taste
1/3 cup / 80 ml coffee liqueur


Whipped cream
1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder
4 maraschino cherries with stems patted dry


Heat the milk in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring just to a simmer. Take off the heat and stir in the chocolate, vanilla, and maraschino cherry liquid until the chocolate is fully melted. Let the mixture sit off the heat for 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld. Reheat the mixture over low heat until it comes to a simmer, stir in the coffee liqueur and serve with a dollop of whipped cream, a dusting of cocoa powder and a maraschino cherry.
