Viviane Bauquet Farre -

The traditional Kir Royale uses crème de cassis, but the recipe from Food & Style uses Chambord for a true raspberry flavor. Top with frozen raspberries for a fruity ice cube, and cheers (while you dream of Paris).


  • 1/2 Cup fresh raspberries
  • 6 lemon twists
  • 3 Ounces Chambord or raspberry liqueur
  • 1 ottle Champagne or sparkling wine, very well chilled

Kir Royale Recipe

Kir is a fairly classic French aperitif — if you can call it a cocktail. It’s basically just crème de cassis (black currant liqueur) poured in a wine glass and topped off with dry white wine. If you’ve spent time wandering the street of Paris, you’ve probably seen people drinking it in a sidewalk café. You may have even tried it it’s often sickly sweet and bright red, which is what happens when someone lazy is mixing Kir.

Luckily, we’ve got the tip for you here on how to make the best of the Kir cocktails*, the mighty Kir Royale. Here, you sub out champagne for the wine. Basically, you just pour in the crème de cassis into a champagne flute, then follow it with chilled dry champagne. Follow the quantities given, but experiment with the ratios until you reach a flavor (and color you don’t want to look like you’re drinking strawberry syrup) that’s satisfying. Garnish with a twist of lemon because it looks cool.

*You heartier types might prefer the variations that replace the wine with cider or Calvados, as the lumberjack-types up in Normandy and Brittany are known to do.

1. Classic French 75 Cocktail

The French 75 is having a moment right now, and why wouldn't it? This light, aromatic, effervescent cocktail is the perfect balance of Champagne (or you can substitute sparkling wine from other countries, such as Prosecco or Cava or use Crémant from France), lemon juice, and aromatic dry gin. Keep it super French by using a French gin, such as Citadelle and an affordable French Champagne, such as Veuve Clicquot yellow label brut. Use a Champagne you'd drink by itself, but don't use a super expensive sparkling wine - save that for sipping on its own.
