Apple Cider a La Maxwell's Bar, Frankfurt

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by Oolala

From The Sheraton World Cookbook. I love creme de cassis so I was attracted to this recipe.

Light and refreshing, though I forgot the ice (definitely will remember next time). I used apple juice rather than apple cider, so I zinged it with a touch of grape juice. I might use only grape juice next time or cranberry juice, since I think purple/red juices complement the blackcurrant flavor of the cassis, though the apple is a nice contrast. I upped the seltzer to make it more fizzy, like the texture of kir (cassis with champagne).

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put ice in 2 tall glasses.
  2. Pour 1/2 the creme de cassis over the ice in one glass and then the rest over the other.
  3. Pour 6 oz. of the apple juice and 3 oz. of the soda over the ice too.
  4. Stir and serve.
