Ribina is wonderful diluted with seltzer or mineral water.
A little vodka doesn't hurt, either.
BTW, when I said I don't mind currants fresh, I mean more the red ones -
although a few black currants in a fruit salad is interesting.

Some fruits need preperation to be enjoyed. Take quince for example. A
great fruit if you cook it. A persimmon if not eaten at the height of
ripeness (looks spoiled) is so astringent it will make you pucker, and you
won't try it again.
I have Ben Lomond and Titania black currant, and they have the spicyness
that some people do not enjoy raw. I make these spicy currants into wine
However, there are many currant varieties that have no spicyness (red
currants, white currants, Crandall (black), Buffalo (black), jostaberry
Your mileage may vary. Buy some black currant wine and then decide. Buy
some "Ribina" concentrate and reconsider.
