Recipe 1- Vodka Republic
This cocktail mix offers a combination of sweet, citrus, and tart flavors. To get a background on how this is done, watch this video below!
Fill your highball glass with crushed ice. With your jigger, measure and add 3 ounces of vodka and 1 ounce of creme de cassis in the glass. Next, get your manual juicer and extract half a lemon to create about 2 ounces of lemon juice.
After that, add 2 ounces simple syrup and pour some lemon-lime soda until it fills the glass. If you like, you can garnish it with one blackberry to serve.
Recipe 2- Diablo
This cocktail drink gives a strong punch with the tequila. To get a good reference of this recipe, you can watch this video below.
For this cocktail mix, you need reposado tequila, creme de cassis, lime juice, ginger ale, ice cubes, and wedge lime. Get ready with a highball glass, manual juicer, cocktail jigger, and cocktail spoon.
Fill your highball glass with a handful of ice cubes. Next, add 3/4 ounce of creme de cassis. With your manual juicer, squeeze some lime and make about 3/4 ounce of lime juice.
Pour the lime juice into the glass. Next, add 2 ounces of reposado tequila and stir using a cocktail spoon. Top with ginger ale and garnish with a wedge lime.
Recipe 3- Kir
This classic kir recipe uses dry white wine, but you can transform it into kir royale if you use champagne instead. See how a classic kir is done in this.
In this recipe, all you need are dry white wine and creme de cassis. If you like to turn it into a kir royale, substitute white wine with champagne. Make sure that you chill the white wine or champagne before you use it.
In a white wine glass, pour 1/4 ounce of creme de cassis. Next, slowly pour 2 1/4 ounce of chilled dry white wine. For kir royale, do the same sequence, but use a champagne flute and chilled champagne in replacement of white wine glass and white wine, respectively.
