- 1/2 oz triple sec
- 1 1/2 oz fresh squeezed orange juice
- Top up with Champagne
Build the ingredients in order in a champagne flute. Garnish with an orange slice.
The Kir Royale combines the flavours of black currant and champagne to make a fascinating aperitif – but you can drink it anyway you like. If you’re looking to impress someone with a sophisticated cocktail, Kir Royale is a great choice.
It’s easy to make and it tastes wonderful – and champagne flutes always add a touch of class. But it’s also a fun drink, suitable for just hanging out or enjoying before a casual barbecue with a few friends.
- Creme de cassis
Pour the Creme de cassis in the bottom of a champagne flute. Fill up the rest of the glass with champagne.
The amount ratios vary. Some recipes call for 1 part Creme de cassis to 9 parts champagne, others call for 1 to 3 and others call for 1 to 5. Experiment!
