Recipe Tips:

- If you don’t have a blender at hand, do not be discouraged. You can replace it with an ordinary meat grinder with a fine grill. In this case, the berries need to be ground several times so that there are as few pieces as possible. After this, pour the mixture into a medium bowl, add sugar and mix thoroughly a tablespoon. Then add milk, water and beat for 5-7 minutes with a hand whisk or mixer.

- Blackcurrant cocktail can be prepared in the winter. To do this, you just need to freeze the berries, and before cooking, remove them in advance from the freezer and thaw to room temperature. But in no case do not defrost this berry under running hot water or in the microwave.

- You can decorate the glass with a decorative cocktail umbrella and a straw, but only for beauty, since the cocktail turns out to be quite thick and it is unlikely that you can drink it through a straw.

- If you are a lover of cold drinks, then it is worth cooling the cocktail in the refrigerator for 30 to 50 minutes.
