The Mexican Currant

A surprisingly great taste of black currant and tequila. Great with grilled foods.

  • ½ oz crème de cassis
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • Ginger ale
  • Ice
  • Lime slices for garnish


  • Chiilled cocktail glass
  • Cocktail shaker with strainer


  1. Shake together ingredients with ice in cocktail shaker.
  2. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.
  3. Garnish with lime slice.

Re: The Mexican Currant

Being a tequila lover, I was weary of this recipe. But I was looking for something different and we figured why not give it a shot. Now I am a convert! what a great recipe. It is perfect for those that don’t like the strong taste of the alcohol (aka my wife) and also for those that enjoy a quality cocktail (aka me)
