With the summer heat on the rise, fun fruit forward cocktails are a must! LeJay Cassis Liqueur is the perfect addition to any cocktail. I enjoy using LeJay as much as possible in cocktails as well as desserts. I am always infusing wine, spirits, and liqueurs into my desserts and find that it can be a great compliment when done correctly.
With that being said, this article is about cocktails, and below are some really delicious cocktails using LeJay Cassis Liqueur! LeJay is a French Cassis Liqueur made from fresh French blackcurrants that are carefully selected and harvested in July. This smooth and delicious liqueur is perfect for any home bar, and works beautifully with sparkling wine and spirits!
