Makes 6 cocktails
Crème de cassis is a sweet, black currant–flavored liqueur. There are two basic types of kir cocktails. This recipe is for a kir royale, a lovely, bubbly blush aperitif. The other, a plain kir, is made with crisp, still white wine, and you can make it just the same way as the recipe below, substituting wine for the Champagne.
- 1 bottle (750 ml) Champagne
- 6 teaspoons crème de cassis
Pour the crème de cassis into each Champagne flute, then fill the glasses with Champagne. Serve immediately for best bubbles.
