Kir Royal (or Kir Royale) is one of the most famous variations of the original cocktail Kir. It is drunk as an apéritif and it can also have quite some variations as instead of Crème de Cassis, Raspberry Liqueur can be added along with fresh raspberry or blackberry as a garnish. Sparkling wines like Prosecco can also be used instead of Champagne. The portions of the ingredients may also vary per region or country.
Let’s see how can we make a Kir Royal, though!
- 270ml / 9 parts Champagne
- 30ml / 1 part Crème de Cassis
Put the Crème de Cassis in the bottom of a chilled Champagne flute glass and add the Champagne. You may stir for a bit or not, and serve.
