I'm looking for a good reason to buy it because it sounds interesting but if I do n't find any good cocktails I'll prob just save my money

The only one I know of is The Diablo which didn't really blow me away when I had it. There may be others. I remember seeing somewhere that some people use creme de cassis in place of blueberry liqueur but I don't know of many that feature one either.

I love Ciro"s Special, from Grog Log, however not everyone does.

1 oz fresh lime
3/4 creme de cassis
1/4 Grand Marnier
1 1/2 oz Dark Jamaican rum.
shake with ice cubes and strain into cocktail glass.

You can also substitute white tequila for rum, I have not.

We are lucky in the PNW to have both Jason Alexander and Tiki Kon. Jason's Jungle Julep is a favorite for us. We don't have Mathilde Cassis locally. We've tried Cartron Cassis, but it is a bit sweet and we prefer Clear Creek Distilleries Cassis Liqueur. We had it the other day with spindly grocery store mint and it was still wonderful!

I am very tempted to buy a bottle just to try that julep - that sounds amazing.

The Sumatra Kula recipe Arriano reverse engineered for his 1950s DTB booklet uses a dash of cassis. I usually extrapolate that into a generous barspoon of the stuff, because A: it kind of gets lost in the drink otherwise and B: I aint got no dasher cap on that bottle.

Sumatra Kula
1½ oz Gold Filipino Rum
½ oz Lime Juice
½ oz Grapefruit Juice
½ oz Orange Juice
½ oz Honey Mix
1 dash Crème de Cassis
Put everything in a blender. Add 3 ounces crushed ice and blend at high
speed for five seconds. Pour into a pilsner glass. Add more crushed ice to fill.
Garnish with a mint sprig.
