Kir | The Traditional French Aperitif
An aperitif is an alcoholic beverage served before a meal to stimulate the appetite. And a very traditional aperitif in this region of France is the kir. Comprised of Crème de cassis, which consists of a sweet, dark red liqueur made from blackcurrants. Topped with a bit of the regions white wine. We’ve been enjoying this so I thought I’d share the traditional recipe.
2 tbsp Crème de cassis
6 oz chilled dry white wine
PROCESS | pour crème de cassis into the bottom of your wine glass and then top with white wine.
VARIATION | substitute the white wine for champagne and you have a kir Royal.
