A Kir Royale made with non-Champagne sparkling wine is technically a “Kir Pétillant.” In either case, it’s a perfect drink for festive occasions.
• 0.25 to 0.5 oz crème de cassis
• 4 oz brut Champagne or other dry sparkling wine
Place liqueur in the bottom of a flute and top with sparkling wine. Serves 1.
