Cocktail Recipe Du Jour: Kir Royale

Posted on November 25, 2014 by Miriam Zelinsky

Happy almost Thanksgiving! 


For today's cocktail recipe du jour, I give you the Kir Royale. Elegant, easy and effective in combatting the holiday stress (and in-laws!). We all have enough on our plates without having to worry about having to continuously pump out individual, time consuming cocktails for every guest the entire day. It's a bit sweet (thanks to the blackcurrant liqueur) but the bubbles make it crisp and refreshing to combat the inevitable turkey day food coma. And hey, bubbles soothe the stomach, right?
Wishing you all a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
What You'll Need:
Champagne, Prosecco or other sparkling wine
