Do you want a grand celebratory drink that’s fancy and beautiful yet delicious? Then, I think I have found the one. The drink I am talking about is Kir Royale. It is a champagne cocktail made with champagne, of course, and a French liqueur.

Kir Royale with Raspberries

The traditional French liqueur used in this drink is Crème de cassis, which is a thick and sweet liqueur made from blackcurrants. If you don’t have access to good Crème de cassis, you can also go for Chambord. It is delicious with complex fruity tones. It is not overpowering at all. But if you like it the old way, I am with you.

Finally, we get a new delicious pink drink besides the usual sparkling rosè. Also, kir royale is different from kir as the latter uses white wine as the main ingredient. This drink is great to stir up on birthdays, Valentine’s Day, or even holidays. Basically, we just need a happy occasion as an excuse to make this drink. Find how to make this simple cocktail kir royale below.
