If there's one thing that makes us feel instantly French, it's an aperitif of a Kir Royale at a sidewalk cafe. The oh-so classic drink of creme de cassis and bubbles is everything we love about France, simultaneously simply elegant and beautifully inspiring.

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces bottle chilled brut Champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/4 ounce creme de mure or creme de cassis
  • ripe plums or pluots

    thinly sliced, for garnish

Instructions

Add Champagne to a Champagne flute then add the creme de mure or creme de cassis and stir. Put a toothpick through a few slices of folded plum, place on the edge of the flute, and serve.
