The basis of many popular cordials and alcoholic drinks, blackcurrant is used in the famous French champagne cocktail the Kir Royal, as well as the standard Kir made with white wine. Félix Kir, mayor of Dijon (1945-1967), popularised the drink by serving it at his receptions. Blackcurrants have a strong, tart flavour, which works well in jam, jelly, cheesecake, yogurts, ice cream and sorbet as well as savoury meat dishes and sauces. Combined with other fruits such as apple, strawberry and raspberry, blackcurrants are often used in summer puddings, pies and crumbles. Simply add Monin Blackcurrant syrup to champagne for a delightful Kir Royal, to cider or beer to make the popular ‘cider and black’ or ‘lager and black’ or mix with other fruit flavours to make refreshingly fruity cocktails.
