Inactive:

Yield:
1 drink
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons black currant syrup (recommended: Ribena)
  • Sparkling apple cider or Champagne, if desired, chilled
  • 2 tablespoons fresh black or red currants, some berries picked and some clusters
Directions
  • Place the currants in the freezer for about 30 minutes prior to making the cocktail. (They will act as mini ice cubes and will keep the cocktail colder longer!)

  • Add the black currant syrup to the bottom of a champagne flute. Top with sparkling apple cider, or Champagne, if using. Drop a couple of currants into the glass and garnish with a small frozen bunch, if desired.

  • Cook's Note: For the ultimate in crowd control, prepare a pitcher of Ruby Royales; just make sure to add the chilled sparkling cider just before serving so everyone will enjoy the bubbly. A pitcher will allow you to mingle with your guests without playing mixologist.
