    Brenda.'s Note:

    I'm so happy to have found this recipe! I love the subtle black currant flavor of creme de cassis. Delicious in desserts, baked goods or drizzled over ice cream. Mix an ounce or 2 with your favorite carbonated beverage for a lite refreshing cocktail.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Combine the currants and red wine in a ceramic or glass bowl, and leave for at least 24 and up to 48 hours.
    2. 2
      Purée the mixture in a food processor or blender, and then strain it through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a large saucepan.
    3. 3
      For every cup of liquid, add 1 cup of sugar.
    4. 4
      Heat gently, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved.
    5. 5
      Do not let the liquid come to a simmer, as you don't want to boil off the alcohol. Then leave at the lowest heat for an hour or more, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced a little and become slightly syrupy.
    6. 6
      Allow to cool.
    7. 7
      Mix together 1 part vodka or brandy with 3 parts of the cooled blackcurrant-wine syrup, and funnel into clean, dry bottles. Store in a cool place for at least 2 weeks before drinking.
    8. 8
      Use whenever a recipe/cocktail calls for creme de cassis.

      I make this every year, and get rave reviews from everyone who scores a bottle from me! Intense currant flavour, delicious, hard to resist! My local farmer knows to call me when the currants are ripe!

      Faced with a mountain of juicy plump blackcurrants in the garden I trawled the internet for recipes that would help me put them to good use. I was thrilled to find this recipe given that I drink kir all the time (white wine with creme de cassis). I made a quadruple batch to use up as many currants as possible - needed two bottles of red wine and 1.5 bottles of brandy but boy was it worth it! The end result is awesome and I now have enough cassis to last me years!!

      I made this Cassis and let me tell you it's fantastic. I was a bit doubtful about the wine - thought it would overcome the wonderful black currant flavor but it didn't. Yummy.
