So good!! I did use black currants and added half of vanilla bean too, just for the fun of it. Produces a gorgeous, deeply-coloured, delicious liqueur. Will definitely make year after year! Thank you Olha!

Fantastic!!! I have a red currant bush so I used my harvest from it. It is a beautiful color. It tastes wonderful. I drink it straight up. It's so smooth I don't even need to use a mixer. Everyone who has tried it, likes it. I am planning on making more next season to give as gifts b/c it is so popular!

Mmmmmm. I've been waiting patiently to try this and it was worth the wait. I didn't have black currants so used red and have a beautiful red liqueur. Thanks for the recipe
