Fizzy Cassis drink

1-fizzy-cassis

I rarely post about drinks. or alcohol at all. Heck, I rarely drink any. Almost never, in fact. Even less since having kids. I actually get a lot of e-mail from PR companies about wine but, well... I don't get around to drinking it, so I can't very well blog about it either.

Anyway. I made these drinks for our annual twelfth night dinner, and it was a pretty unusual combination! If you want to keep them non-alcoholic, just omit the gin.

One glass:
2 tbsp black currant cordial, concentrated (in Swedish - svartvinbärssaft.)
2 tbsp gin
1 lime slice
ice
150 ml sparkling apple cider (as dry as you can find, definitely not too sweet)

Is the cider you get not alcoholic? These look lovely, but I'd probably use black currant liqueur, gin and hard cider!

Åååå, vad det låter läskande och gott. Jag älskar svartvinbärssaft, och gin, dessutom!

Mina föräldrar har svartvinbärsbuskar i deras trädgård men de har varit lite skröppliga sista två sommrarna (både mina föräldrar och buskarna) så vi har inte fått någon bra skörd. Annars brukar mamma koka upp svartvinbärs gele och saft åt oss alla. Kanske jag kan få saft från en import affär eller IKEA. Jag får väl göra lite Research som de säger här...

Tack för receptet!

Foodycat - it was something like 2.2%, so a little alcohol but very little :-)

OTC - Åh hoppas du hittar lite :-) Ta Creme de cassis annars, det var det i originalet men jag var för snål/lat för att skaffa :-)
