What Is In a Kir Royale

  1. Champagne (Or sparkling wine): I prefer champagne here, but any sparkling wine will do. I prefer a dryer wine as it balances out the black current liqueur nicely. If you don’t like champagne Prosecco would also work great.
  2. Creme De Cassis: Crème de cassis is a sweet, red liqueur made from blackcurrants. It is often served as an after-dinner drink, as is, or as part of a cocktail It also give the drink its gorgeous color.

Leftover Creme De Cassis?  I also love using them in El Diablos.

Kir Royale Recipe

  1. Pour Creme De Cassis into glass.
  2. Add champagne and garnish with fruit if desired.

Variations

  1. Make it non alcoholic by using sparkling grape juice. It won’t taste exactly the same, but cranberry juice or raspberry syrup can be substituted.
  2. Kir: Not a fan of bubbly? Use a dry white wine instead.
  3. Raspberry Liqueur: Not a fan of creme de cassis? Use Chambord or another fruity liquor instead.
