Kir Royale

by on October 25, 2011 · 1 comment

We had fun. We took that photo for Betty Crocker a while back because they wanted to share a few “spooky cocktails” for Halloween. We love cocktails, but don’t usually get into those that are themed. Then again, who are we to turn down a chance to test cocktail recipes? A Kir Royale is certainly not new on the block, but we loved it so much we thought that the reddish hue would be a good option for the 31st.

Any plans for Halloween? Marmalade is ready.

Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Creme de Cassis is a sweet dark liqueur made from blackcurrants. When the chilled sparkling wine hits the creme de cassis in the bottom of each glass, the drink takes on a reddish hue. We especially enjoy a Kir Royale as an aperitif with small bites before dinner. If you would prefer it, a dry white wine can be substituted for the sparkling wine and is just as lovely.
