Review:

Just as Aaron, its creator, describes it, whiskey-laced boozy blackcurrant fruit pastille.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Aaron Wall at his Homeboy bar in Islington, London, England where it's one of the signature cocktails. Aaron says, "The Blackthorn cocktail appears in The Savoy Cocktail Book with a gin and an Irish whiskey version, using fortified wine as a modifier. The idea for us was to amplify the berry flavours that you would get from the fortified wine and use a port instead and rounding it off with a little demerara sugar to make this drink finish with a distinct taste of boozy blackcurrant fruit pastille."

Nutrition:

There are approximately 164 calories in one serving of Blackthorn No.2 (Homeboy's).
