My friend Jackie came up with this concoction for a hot summer day. She describes it as “dangerously refreshing” since it is a delicious thirst quencher that nonetheless has enough vodka to all but guarantee a lazy summer afternoon. You could, of course, omit the vodka if you were intending to be more productive.
1 teaspoon currant syrup (store-bought or see above for making it yourself )
1 tablespoon mango juice
Big squeeze each of fresh lime and lemon
2 ounces vodka
2 ounces plain seltzer
Combine currant syrup, mango juice, lime and lemon juice and vodka in a tall glass and stir. Add seltzer and then ice.
