Kir Royale Cocktail Recipe
I’ve been in the mood for a fall refresh, which not only includes my wardrobe, but cocktails as well. Autumn seems to have a more sophisticated and sultry feel, and the Kir Royale is a classic French cocktail that’s simply the perfect fit for the season. The Kir Royale can be made with a variety of other berry and fruit liqueurs, but with early autumn settling in, I chose in-season blackberries, and Crème de Cassis – a black currant liqueur. Then add a splash of St Germain, to your liking. This drink is light and bubbly with a rich berry flavor … not to mention incredibly refreshing! Topped off with juicy blackberries (or raspberries!) for garnish, you’ll be enjoying this drink throughout the season.
Ingredients (makes one cocktail)
1/2 oz. Crème de Cassis
3 oz. French champagne or sparkling wine
1 splash St Germain Liqueur
Blackberries for garnish
Simply pour the two liquids together in a champagne flute, add a splash of St Germain, top with blackberries, and enjoy!
