Heat of the Heart

Heat of the heart

COUNTRY:

Rich, smooth and complex in flavour this blackcurrant based cocktail is basically grown-up Ribena!

The (only moderately) older half of Mission Eurovision is quite partial to a perfect Manhattan, and found this similar in style. We garnished with our blackberries on a cocktail stick – to avoid having your eyes out and/or the blackberry sliding around the rim of the glass, we’d suggest just placing three of them in the base of your glass. You can then eat the boozy berries once you’ve finished!
