DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the currants and red wine in a ceramic or glass bowl, and leave for at least 24 and up to 48 hours.
  • Purée the mixture in a food processor or blender, and then strain it through a cheesecloth-lined sieve into a large saucepan.
  • For every cup of liquid, add 1 cup of sugar.
  • Heat gently, stirring frequently, until the sugar has dissolved.
  • 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.
  • Allow to cool.
  • 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.
  • Use whenever a recipe/cocktail calls for creme de cassis.
