Creamy Cassis Cocktails

Scott Phillips

Yield: Makes 1 drink

For those too full from dinner to eat a sticky pudding, this drink, reminiscent of a white Russian but with a subtle fruit flavor, makes a nice sweet alternative. For a pretty garnish, toss 1/4 cup sanding sugar with 3/4 tsp. crème de cassis on a plate and rim the glass with the sugar.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 oz. black currant liqueur, such as crème de cassis
  • 1-3/4 oz. whole milk
  • 1 oz. vanilla vodka

Preparation

  • In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup water with the sugar. Split the vanilla bean and scrape the seeds into the pan. Heat over medium-low heat until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. (The syrup, which makes more than you will need, will keep, covered and refrigerated, for at least 1 month.)
  • In a martini glass or similar, combine the liqueur with 1/2 oz. of the vanilla syrup, and add enough ice to fill the glass. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, then add the milk and vodka, cover, and shake vigorously for about 1-1/2 minutes. Strain into the glass with the syrup and ice, and serve.
