Drink of the Week: Kir Royale

Time to ring in the New Year with this Drink of the Week!

Looking for a way to fancy up your champagne game for this New Year’s Eve? Try our Drink of the Week: The Kir Royale.

Drink of the Week: Kir Royale Cocktail

The Kir Royale is a simple, yet tasty remedy to boring stand alone champagne. Kir Royales differ from Kirs, a French apéritif’ – meaning to be drunk before a meal, in that they are made using Champagne, rather than the Aligoté white wine.

In France, this cocktail tends to be expensive, so it is reserved for special occasions. This combination of champagne and Crème de Cassis has become an iconic favorite in France and around the world. For this Kir Royale cocktail, we used Briottet Crème de Cassis which makes a great pair with classic dry champagne. This French cocktail is sure to be a party pleaser with its sweet profile and notes of dark currant. Here’s to a very Happy New Year, Cheers!
