SERVING SUGGESTIONS

Currant Winter Tonic
Hot water, lemon juice, extra honey and Kiss of Cassis™ Black Currant Cordial. Great for a cold — black currants are high in antioxidants and vitamin C!


Black Currant Icing
Makes enough to generously frost a 9-inch round layer cake or two dozen cupcakes.
  • 4 sticks Unsalted Butter, room temperature
  • 6 cups sifted Confectioners' Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 cup Kiss of Cassis™, add up to 4 more teaspoons of Black Currant Cordial for stronger black currant flavor

Blend butter in a mixer on medium-high until pale and fluffy. Add vanilla and Kiss of Cassis™ and blend until well-incorporated. Reduce speed to low. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Raise speed to high and beat until well-combined, 10 to 20 seconds more. Transfer to a bowl, and cover with plastic wrap until ready to use. After icing your cake, refrigerate until the frosting is set, a couple of hours or overnight.
