A Simple Cocktail: The Kir Royale

There’s no denying that sometimes simplicity really is the best. And the Kir Royale exemplifies this perfectly. Riffing on the classic French cocktail called the Kir (crème de cassis topped with white wine) the Kir Royale simply swaps the wine with Champagne. – AJ Dean

Glass: Champagne flute
Garnish: Raspberry


  • 1 ounce black currant liqueur
  • 6 ounces Champagne Raspberry, for garnish


In a Champagne flute, add the black currant liqueur and top with Champagne. Garnish with a raspberry.


Any berry liqueur (Chambord or crème de framboise, for example) will make an excellent Kir Royale. Just remember that the drink should not be too sweet. The role of the Champagne is to balance the sweetness
