3/4 ounce Vodka or Rum

1/4 ounce Cherry Heering Liqueur

1/2 ounce Coffee Liqueur

1/2 ounce Irish Cream

2 ounces Cranberry Juice

Maraschino Cherry Garnish

Combine liquids in cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously to completely blend and chill. Strain into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with skewered maraschino cherry. Notation: First few sips render mostly cherry, but once the flavor sits on the taste buds for a moment or two the intermingling of chocolaty mocha plays gracefully on the tongue. My Sweet Cherry was inspired by the Black Forest Cake shot.
