Kir Royale: Champagne + Chambord

by Tuesday, January 12, 2016

Kir Royale is an iconic french cocktail – basically champagne with a splash of a black currant liquor, crème de cassis. (A Kir is made with white wine instead of Champagne. But what’s the point? Bubble or bust, if you ask me.) It’s a bit hard to find crème de cassis but I think most people just substitute Chambord, a raspberry liquor. At leasts that what’s I do.
