    This cassis sounds fabulous. I used up all of my blackcurrants on cordial this year so I’ll have to wait till next year to make some. The cocktails also sound very delicious!

    It’s well worth holding some blackcurrants back for adult use, Nessa. The rest of mine were picked and eaten directly from the bush by myself and Little Missy. Not much opportunity to preserve anything!
