The classic French aperitif becomes even more elegant with Cognac added.

Made with white wine and a smidgen of crème de cassis liqueur, the Kir is a classic French apéritif. Substitute Champagne for white wine, and it's called a Kir Royale. With a little Cognac in the mix, the drink becomes even more dashing.

1/4 fluid ounce Crème de Cassis or raspberry liqueur
4 fluid ounces Champagne or sparkling wine


  1. Pour Cognac and Crème de Cassis in a Champagne flute.
  2. Gradually fill the flute with Champagne or sparkling wine and serve.
