Vitamin C Blackcurrant Boost

This simple concoction is light, fruity and a perfectly refreshing drink for summer afternoons, full of lots of protective antioxidant power from the phytochemicals in blackcurrants and apples. Alternatively for winter, why not spice things up with a fine grating of mace to taste, and serve warmed as a 'flu-fighter'.
