King of all sweet and sour cocktails, the Black Lemon is the essence of the sour citrusy tang of lemon, the timeless cocktail flavour. The reason behind the word black is another flavour, as this cocktail is typically made with Chocolate liqueur, which brings its own unique sweet flavour into the blend. It is a cocktail served shaken, not stirred, and is definitely a martini worthy of James Bond himself.

Who would have ever thought that the citrusy zest of the lemon flavour could ever go well with a food that has the taste of chocolate in it? Even though the two flavours may not meet in the food world, they definitely do in the liquid one.

The two fruit- and chocolate-flavoured liqueurs taste like they were made for each other when shaken together, and the final flavour is something that makes many a cocktail lover often abandon all other choices for this one. This is a very chilled and cool martini, and it subsequently leaves the drinker with a quenched thirst and a cooled off brain. This refreshing martini is a great treat at the end of a tiring day of work, to celebrate the start of what promises to be an adventurous night, even though in persona this martini is definitely on the classier side. This way, you get the best of both worlds. It is a potent concoction which should not be underestimated or taken too generously. Rather it should be savoured, as it has a flavour of its own which no other cocktail can match.

Here is a recipe for the delicious and intimidating, yet extremely easy to make Black Lemon liqueur.


  • 45 ml Mozart Black chocolate liqueur
  • 30 ml Limoncello lemon liqueur


  1. Add two or three ice cubes to a chilled martini glass
  2. Pour ingredients over the ice cubes
  3. Stir briskly and serve immediately


  • Martini glass
  • Ice cubes
  • Stirrer
