Kir Royale cocktail
The Kir Royale is a classic cocktail made with crème de cassis (a blackcurrant liqueur), and differs from the Kir cocktail, as it uses Champagne or Prosecco instead of white wine – making it much more luxurious.
Kir cocktails originate from Burgundy, France and first became popular during the mid 19th century, and afterwards had a resurgence after World War II when Félix Kir, a local mayor served them to advertise local produce.
