Description

Here’s how to make a Kir Royale! These tips make the very best version of this simple and sophisticated classic cocktail.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 ounce crème de cassis (or substitute Chambord or crème de mure)*
  • 4 ounces sparkling wine** (Champagne, Prosecco, or other)
  • Raspberries, for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pour the crème de cassis, Chambord, or crème de mure into a champagne glass. Top it off with the sparkling wine.
  2. Garnish with raspberries if desired. Serve immediately.

Notes

*Crème de cassis is the original; the flavor is also great with Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur, or crème de mure, a blackberry liqueur. See notes in the section above for more details.

**1 750 mL bottle sparkling wine serves 6 drinks.
