Chambord Kir Royale
2 Oz. Chambord liquor
1 – 2 Splits of Prosecco
4 Fresh raspberries
1. Add one ounce of Chambord to each of two flute glasses. Top with the chilled Prosecco and add two raspberries to each glass. Depending on the size of your flutes, you may need or want a split of Prosecco for each person. You decide. Enjoy!
NOTES: The first time I had a Kir Royale was while in the Hamptons years ago. A good friend had just gotten back from Paris and that was “the drink” of the moment. It became her signature vacation drink and it was pretty good. A little drink lesson here: The traditional Kir Royale is Champagne with crème de cassis. That is an upgrade from a Kir cocktail (white wine with crème de cassis). So, here you have the classics, Kir, Kir Royale and now my Chambord Kir Royale. All are good but my twist using Chambord, a raspberry flavored liqueur and Prosecco, a less expensive sparkling wine is special. The result is one delicious cocktail with my own personal spin! The fresh raspberries take it over the top. Enjoy!
