- · Crème de Cassis
- · Champagne or other dry Sparkling Wine
A lovely bottle of Crème de Cassis was the highlight of my week! Blue skies, summer-like weather, a shorter project list and a recently bathed dog added to my contentment.
Last evening was the perfect time to indulge in a Kir Royale. A cocktail originally made with just a dry white wine from Burgundy, like Chablis, I’ve instead added a sparkling Cremant de Limoux! I think the wine’s bubbles add glamour and elegance as well as a bit more refreshment than still wine. Crème de Cassis is a liqueur made of black currants. Its ruby red color and sweet/tart nature make it lovely drizzled over berries, a fresh sponge cake or part of a cocktail.
Take 2 champagne flutes or wine glasses, add about a tablespoon of Crème de Cassis and fill the flute full of sparkling wine, or the wine glass half full of sparkling wine. Enjoy!
