The Kir Royale Cocktail is chic and refreshing. My favorite cocktail, made with crème de cassis and champagne, as seen on Emily in Paris. 


  • 5 oz Champagne or Sparkling Wine (dry - not sweet)
  • 1 tbsp Crème de Cassis Liqueur


  1. Pour the Crème de Cassis Liqueur into the bottom of a champagne flute
  2. Top with chilled Champagne or Sparkling Wine
  3. Stir and serve immediately

It truly is as simple as that!


Le Chef's Wife Tip: Make sure you are using dry champagne (classified as Brut) or sparking wine for this recipe. The Crème de cassis is already quite sweet - if you use a sweet sparkling wine (demi-sec or doux) the drink will be much too sweet.
