If there’s one thing that makes us feel instantly French, it’s an aperitif of a Kir Royale at a sidewalk café. This oh-so Classic Kir Royale Cocktail recipe of crème de cassis and bubbles is everything we love about France, simultaneously simply elegant and beautifully inspiring.
Classic Kir Royale Cocktail Recipe
- 3 ounces bottle chilled brut Champagne or sparkling wine
- 1/4 ounce crème de mure or crème de cassis
- Ripe plums or pluots thinly sliced, for garnish
- To Make The Kir Royale Cocktail: Add Champagne to a Champagne flute then add the crème de mure or crème de cassis and stir. Put a toothpick through a few slices of folded plum, place on the edge of the flute, and serve.
