What is it?

A blackcurrant liqueur, crème de cassis is a specialty of Burgundy, France, made from crushed blackcurrants that are refined into alcohol and mixed with sugar. It is delicious in aperitifs such as the famous kir, but also adds a deep, fruity depth to berry sauces and both berry and chocolate desserts.
