Black Cap Raspberry Cassis
Homemade cassis flavored with black cap raspberries and a touch of maple syrup.
Black cap raspberry, Black Currants
blackcap raspberries or other berries
bottle of brandy
not too cheap, not too expensive*
or to taste
Mix the brandy and maple syrup.
Pick the berries over for debris or any foreign particles.
Cover the berries with brandy and maple and store for a few months (I'd suggest at least 2-3) in a non-reactive container in a cool dark place.
Taste the cassis from time to time to check on it's progress.
When you're pleased with the flavor, strain without pressing on the berries, then bottle the liquor.
*Something like E and J is fine here, just don't use some bottom of the barrel pain thinner.
