Kir Royal

When seeking out the appropriate weekend drink indulgence, one that promises you’ll forget the previous week and propel you into sheer relaxation, look no further than the Kir Royal. This popular French cocktail, usually served as an apéritif before a meal, will fill your palette with all the benefits of champagne while transporting you to Paris (and not for a business trip).

The drink itself is made with champagne and crème de cassis, however if you’re in France, which upon first sip you’ll likely think you are, the server will give you the option to have the drink made with either crème de cassis (black currant),  de mûre (blackberry) or de pèche (peach).

As a familiar connoisseur of this luxurious champagne drink I recommend sidling up to the bar at the French Bistro Pigalle ( in midtown. If you prefer to enjoy the drink while in the comforts of your own home follow the simple mixture below, and don’t for get to dim the lights and turn on your favorite french music.


6 ounces champagne
1/2 ounce crème de cassis or chambord
Lemon twist

Pour the champagne and cassis into a champagne flute. Stir. Garnish with lemon twist.
