The first thing I did with those currants is steep some in a good, local, vodka.
The rest will be handed off to my Dad who makes amazing hard cider. He’s tried wild grapes, and always makes some with cranberries. So black currants seem logical too.
I’ve been making some really nice fizzy, fruity drinks too. That one is fresh blueberries with mint.
This one I left out the mint and added blood orange bitters. Also this is a great chance to use up those artisanal ice cubes I made last spring.
