black forest drink

Did you know that March 28 is National Black Forest Cake Day? This delicious dessert is also known as “Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte,” which literally translates to “black forest cherry torte” and originated from Germany. Black Forest cake is a sponge cake that features a signature look that consists of chocolate shavings, whipped cream, and Maraschino cherries.

This cake is called “black forest” because it is said to originate from the Black Forest region of southern Germany in 1915. Josef Keller, the pastry chef who claimed to have invented the cake, passed the recipe down through chefs in Cafe Agner, which still exists today in Bad Godesberg in the city of Bonn.

However, other legends say that the cake originated long before Keller was born. Some say that it was invented in the 16th century when chocolate was first integrated into baked desserts, which symbolize a dark look that is reminiscent of forests. Whatever its origins may be, black forest cake indeed has come a long way and has delighted people with its unique creamy, rich, sweet, and tart combination of flavors for years.

With that being said, excite your customers this National Black Forest Cake Day by offering them a drink in this decadent cake flavor. A Black Forest Cake Boba Tea also offers different textures, as you will be adding chewy tapioca boba pearls. Make this beverage available for a limited time, so more people will want to buy it before it’s gone from your menu. Creating this drink is pretty easy, and the ingredients and other boba supplies you’ll need are readily available from stores.

What are the ingredients of Black Forest Cake Boba Tea?

Here are the ingredients and supplies you’ll need to create this decadent beverage:

- Black Tea Leaves
- Ghirardelli Premium Water-Soluble Hot Cocoa
- Ground Cinnamon
- Black Cherry Juice
- DaVinci Classic Black Cherry Syrup
- Milk
- Ice Cubes
- Tea Zone Chewy Tapioca Boba
- Dark Chocolate Shavings
- Maraschino Cherry
- Giant Red Spiral Straw

What are the directions for making Black Forest Cake Boba Tea?

1. Brew the black tea leaves and let cool.
2. Mix the hot cocoa powder and ground cinnamon with some warm water.
3. When the powder has dissolved, pour it into a plastic cold cup
4. Once the tea has cooled, pour it into the same cup.
5. Add some ice cubes.
6. Stir in the black cherry juice and milk.
7. Garnish with the chewy tapioca, dark chocolate shavings, and a Maraschino cherry.
8. Serve with a giant red spiral straw that is big enough for the tapioca pearls to pass through.

Can you create other versions of the Black Forest Cake Boba Tea?

You can also create another Black Forest Cake beverage variant by using a combination of chocolate and cherry popping pearls instead of chewy tapioca boba pearls. Because the popping pearls already have flavor, you can skip the black cherry syrup and lessen the cocoa powder. Otherwise, it might get too sweet or rich.

Another version is a Black Forest Cake Frappe Tea that has no boba or popping pearls but is instead topped with a dollop of whipped cream, more dark chocolate shavings, and cherries, and drizzled with black cherry syrup.

There are many variations of this limited-edition beverage but focus on one that you think is the perfect version for your target customers.
