Kir Royale

Kir Royale is a classic cocktail made with crème de cassis (a blackcurrant liqueur) , and differs from the Kir, 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.

Method

  1. Pour the crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur) into a champage glass. 
  2. Then top up the glass with champagne or sparkling wine. 
  3. Make sure to pour the champagne after the liqueur as the champagne will naturally mix the liquids. 
The Kir drink is named after Félix Kir (1876–1968), mayor of Dijon in Burgundy.
