Creme De Cassis ... combining sugar and blackcurrants soaked in eau de vie or pure alcohol. Crème de Cassis is a blood-red, sweet, blackcurrant-flavored liqueur, and is an ingredient of kir, an apéritif. The modern version of the drink first appeared in the Burgundy region in 1841, displacing Ratafia de Cassis from prior centuries. It is made from blackcurrants crushed into refined alcohol, with sugar subsequently added. While Crème de Cassis is a specialty of Burgundy it is made in other cities of France, as well as in Luxembourg and Quebec.

Following a recent "Come Dine With Me" style dinner party competition we're having with some friends, I decided to buy a bottle of Creme De Cassis from Sainsburys, I believe Gabriel Boudier Dijon was the exact brand. Creme De Cassis is one of the ingredients to the excellent but simple Kir Royale cocktail - one part Creme De Cassis, four parts champagne. The drink went down really well when served with my opening nibbles and earned me some extra points! The bottle cost around £10 for 50ml and I was rather left thinking "what do I do with it now?" after the party. For those of you that haven't tried it, its a little bit like a 20% proof ...

On my most recent trip down to my boyfriends house in Eastbourne, we were having dinner when his parents, who also own a home in France, uttered those magical words 'We need some drink with this!'. Luckily, having just returned from France, they has come back with several bottles of excellent sparkling wine, and we had a few glasses of this . Then, my boyfriends mum began rummaging in her booze cupboard for something to go with it, and produced an old, rather sticky, bottle of Crème de Cassis . Now, I'd never seen this before - but accepted a little in my glass, topped up with the fizzy wine .To my delight, I now had fizzy Ribena, with my wine turning a rich ... Read the complete review

One of my favourite drinks/treats is champagne..........or cava or prosecco etc etc. Basically you could say I'm a fan of sparkling white wine drinks and I'm not fussy about the origin or brand! But what really turns my favourite drink into something even more special is a splash of crème de cassis. For those of you who aren't familiar with it, to describe it in a nutshell would be to say that it is alcoholic blackcurrant cordial. Cassis is a blackcurrant flavoured liqueur which can either be drunk on its own with ice and sipped slowly or more often than not is drunk with champagne or white wine. What I do is pour a small amount of cassis into the bottom of ... Read the complete review

Mmmmmmmm... that just about sums it up. Well, mmmmm as long as you like Ribena that is, because if you don't I have to say that Crème de Cassis just will not do a lot for you. So, what is Crème de Cassis? Basically, a blackcurrant liqueur. It's smooth in taste, a wonderfully deep purple/red colour, and it has a syrup like consistency. It is quite deceptive on the senses - the alcoholic undertones usually present in drinks of an adult nature are masked by the delightfully fresh and fruity aroma that is somewhat similar to opening a jar of blackcurrant jam, and the taste is along the lines of Ribena in it's concentrated form. ...

I first experienced crème de cassis when I was on holiday in France. It was a warm summers evening and we had been invited to supper with French friends. I was handed a glass of white wine mixed with crème de cassis and was struck by how pretty it looked as the blackcurrant liqueur mixed with the white wine. The drink was pure nectar and I have been hooked ever since! What is crème de cassis? Crème de cassis is a blackcurrant liqueur produced in Dijon, the capital of Burgundy. With an alcohol content of 20 % (40 %) proof it should be treated with respect especially if you mix it with white wine, as I like to! Crème de cassis is a beautiful deep ... Read the complete review
