I'm tagged!

First, the promised drink from my party. This one is a blackcurrant-orange drink. I don't have a name but I have two recipes.



For the mocktail, pour 2 tbsp blackcurrant crush in a glass (I use one of those Mapro bottles you get from Mahabaleshwar). Sprinkle a generous pinch of rock salt (black salt). Add enough orange juice to fill half the glass and give it a stir. Top with plain soda.

To make the cocktail, pour 30 ml vodka in a glass. Add 2 tbsp blackcurrant crush and stir. Now add orange juice to fill the glass to half and fill with soda. If you would like a sweeter drink, replace soda with limca.

And now the meme:
