MY MOST KURRANT TOOTHACHE
45ml Absolut Kurrant Vodka*
30ml Triple Sec
30ml Schweppes Blackcurrant cordial
5 or 6 blackcurrants (optional)
4 Lemon ice cubes**
half a tray of ice cubes (roughly 7)
Throw all ingredients into a blender; blend well. Makes one large goblet of blissful blackcurrant slush.
Purple grapes and cocktail umbrellas! Awesome.
* I use Absolut's blackcurrant infused vodka for the extra blackcurrant taste, but you can use plain vodka if you don't have any Absolut Kurrant, as there is already blackcurrant cordial in this recipe.
** 4 lemon ice cubes is roughly 60mls lemon juice. You can make lemon ice cubes exactly the same way as normal ice cubes and then store them in a tupperware container in your freezer. Easy!
Not a very strong fragrance whilst frozen, but as the slushy ice melts the sweetness and fruity aroma is unleashed.
Many of the flavours are hidden beneath the cold ice but a definite blackcurrant and orange flavour comes out as the drink melts.
The sweet blackcurrant follows through to the end as a sharp lemon tang finishes the drink.
This is a perfect summer-time drink and goes down really well at parties.
