Anyone know where I can get some Kirsch? (Cherry liqueur)…
tried Aldi, Dunnes and Tesco…. no luck….May 17, 2011 at 8:31 am #113201JedtMember
Is this the stuff they use to make Kir Royale with champagne? Ask at some off licenses, they’re probably your best bet. There is a big off license across from the old town centre in Drogheda at the Haymarket, might be worth a look in there or even phone them up, I think its an O’Brien’s off license.May 17, 2011 at 8:43 am #113205
For Kir royal it’s creme de cassis (blackcurrant).
If you can’t find Kirsh you can always use a dry liqueur, depends what it is for.
The only thing I have at home is Cognac, Armagnac and Calvados (apple liqueur) and Sake, if you want some let me know.
Good luck with your search.

Probably need to get a certain admin to taste that Black Forest or we could consider the Ban-Hammer 😈May 17, 2011 at 2:29 pm #113221
Ah…. we’ll have to see what we can do about that Admin…. 😆

i was going to say o briens my dh is a manager with them…
how was the black forest gateau….post the recipe please i wouldnt mind trying it…May 18, 2011 at 8:35 pm #113267
I haven’t tried it yet….. it is sitting in the fridge, grinning at me … as my mother in law says that with Black Forest it is best to make it one day, let the Kirsch seep, and then eat it the next day…
I may have been heavy handed with the Kirsch…. 🙄 😳 😆 😆 😆
Sure, I could be drunk tomorrow….
Incidentally HJS will be coming over in the morning…. she’ll be my guinea pig! 😆
Chickpea…. ’tis simple….
make chocolate cake with whatever recipe you like…. drizzle kirsch on each layer, put cream in between the layers… with cherries…. then cream over full cake…. more cherries on top, chocolate vermicilli…. and Bob’s your uncle! 😉 Quantities of Kirsch… I have no idea…. my mother in law is notorious for her "lack of measurements" 😆 …. so I have no clue. Though, in all honesty, she is the best baker I’ve met… 😉May 19, 2011 at 7:32 pm #113295chickpeaMember
