The Currant Vodka Martini

Currant vodka is one of the newer flavors of vodka available on the market. Therefore, there aren’t a lot of cocktail recipes out there that use it. The Currant Vodka Martini keeps it very simple. But the flavor is out of this world.

  • 3 ounces Absolut Kurant vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cassis liqueur (which is also currant-flavored)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry white wine

This one’s good on the rocks or straight up. You can either stir all the ingredients together with ice in a cocktail glass, or stir them with ice in another vessel and strain the chilled mixture into your glass. Just don’t shake it. Optionally garnish it with a sprig of black currant.
