Cocktails with Cassis?

I just got some delicious Creme de Cassis in Ile d'Orleans, Quebec.
Apart from Kir/Royale, what are your favorite drinks with cassis?

    2 oz silver tequilla
    1 oz house made (or other spicy jamican ginger beer)
    3/4 oz lime (or lemon)
    3/4 oz cassis

    shake, serve in rocks glass

    1. We used to call this one "Wednesday's Lemon Drop"

      Ketel One Citron
      fresh lemon juice to taste
      Sugared rim
      Drop in about 10 drops or so of cassis after shaking vodka/lemon juice and it will look like a jewel

        All that is a Grape Crush shot with Cassis substituted for Chambord minu the Sprite/7-Up.

        Anyone who went to dance clubs in the 90's would probably enjoy it!

      2. Thank you for these!
        Here's one I adapted from the Canton on I call it Canton de Quebec:
        1.5 oz rum
        1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino liquer
        1/4 oz Cointreau
        dash Creme de Cassis
        shake, strain and serve up.
