Learn how to make a classic Kir Royale with this simple recipe! You’ll only need two ingredients—Champagne and Chambord (or crème de cassis). Feel free to use a little more or less liqueur to suit your taste buds. Recipe as written yields 1 drink.*
1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) Chambord or crème de cassis
5 ounces chilled brut (dry) Champagne
Optional garnish: 1 fresh raspberry
Pour the Chambord into a Champagne flute. While holding the glass at a 45-degree angle (this helps preserve the bubbles), gently pour in the Champagne.
Garnish with a raspberry, if you’d like. Serve immediately.
*How to scale this recipe: One bottle of Champage will yield about 5 drinks. One small (375 mL) bottle of Chambord is enough for 25 drinks. So, you’ll need five times as much Champagne as Chambord.
