Author Notes: One of the summer drinks we're making at our bar right now, tweaked for making at home. We make our own creme de cassis in house, but for purchasing I recommend looking for a nice brand like Mathilde or Briottet. —fiveandspice
ounces aquavit, or vodka for a less spiced drink
ounce creme de cassis
ounce Riesling syrup (to make, just combine 3 parts off-dry Riesling and 1 part sugar, stir to dissolve)

- Short shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into a glass filled with crushed ice. Serve with a straw.
