2. Nude

On the rocks

1.    British Royale

An Anglo-French Romance

  • British Cassis
  • Champagne or Prosecco
  • Blackcurrants

What cassis cocktail list would be complete without the classic Kir Royale, made elegantly British with British Cassis. This simple and elegant drink is a celebration of champagne and fruity and tart cassis. Served in a champagne flute the Kir Royale is lively on the palette and refined on the eye. You can even buy a British Cassis Kir Royale Valentines gift pack to make the experience even easier. This is one you can have fun making together in the kitchen.
