Kir Royale Recipe

If you ask me, life is a celebration so I always have a bottle of bubbles chilling in my refrigerator for when the occasion arises. While there’s nothing wrong with a simple glass of sparkling wine, I love adding a little something special to turn it into a fun cocktail.

Where it’s adding juice to turn it into a mimosa, splashing it with gin to create a French 75 or simply topping it with a fun liqueur, nothing turns a boring moment into something magical quite like bubbles.

Pouring Champagne

Speaking of bubbles, today I’m sharing a simple, two-ingredient recipe: the Kir Royale.

Adding Chambord to Champagne

Chambord is my go-to for blackberry liqueur but any brand you can find works well. You can either splash it on top for your guests or set up a fun serve-yourself bubbles bar with a variety of liqueurs for your guests to help themselves.

Ideal for Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve or any special occasion, I love to top each glass with a few pomegranate seeds for a little festive touch. Raspberries, blackberries or strawberries would be a great garnish also.

Frequently asked questions:

What is a Kir Royale?

A French cocktail recipe made with sparkling, dry white wine and blackberry liqueur. It’s a variation on Kir, a popular French cocktail made with white wine and creme de cassis (black currant liqueur.)

Can Kir Royales be Made in Advance?

Since the bubbles in sparkling wine fizz out once poured, I don’t recommend pouring this cocktail until you’re ready to enjoy. To keep fresh and chilled, store the sparkling wine in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve.

Your friends are waiting.

    Chambord is a black raspberry, not a blackberry liqueur
