If you and your BFFs are just blowing off some steam after work, heading out for a “no boys allowed” night of dancing, or celebrating Women’s Day or someone’s last days of singledom at a bachelorette party, this drink is perfect for a night with the girls.
BLACK CURRANT MARTINI
Black currants pack a lot of flavour into a small fruit. Their flavour is something similar to a combination of raspberries, blackberries, and passionfruit. If you’re unfamiliar with currants it’s easy to see how currant vodka and black currant martinis would be so tasty and alluring. A classic black currant martini is made with relatively few ingredients and doesn’t take much time or effort to enjoy that decadent first sip. Lime juice is a staple for many martini drinks, and the currant martini relies on the juice to balance out the sweetness. If you’re a fan of currants, it’s worth diving into the world of black currant martini. If currants are new for you, it’s still well worth giving this approachable flavour a try. Since black currants mix well with other fruits, you can easily swap this spirit, next time you’re shaking something up.
– 4 ounces black currant juice
-2 ounces cassis
-8 ounces good silver taquila
-5 tablespoons black salt
-Blackberries for garnish
HOW TO MAKE?
- Pour currant juice, cassis, tequila, and lime juice in a pitcher.
- Garnish the glass and on a plate pour a few tablespoons of black salt.
- Rub a lime wedge around outer rim of glass to wet, and then dip in the salt. – Pour & serve!
- Pour enough of the juice mix for 1 margarita in a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice and shake for 45 seconds.

Mixing cocktail ingredients prior to a party minus the ice is surely a feisty way to make cocktail mixing much easier once a party gets started.
