Kir Royal

  • 15ml Cassis (or Chambord)
  • Top with Champagne

Build this drink slowly and stir lightly as not to disturb the bubbles too much.

A variation of the Kir cocktail, which used white wine instead of champagne. It was named after Felix Kir, mayor of Dijon, who post WW2 would drink “lesser” quality white Burgundy wines with a splash of the regions other great export, cassis when entertaining visiting statesman, as zi Germanz nicked all of the red! Mayor Kir has taught us a great lesson here, you cant let any booze go to waist!
