Ingredients

  • 2 - 4 Champagne flutes
  • 2 - 4 Sugar Cubes
  • 1 bottle Angostura bitters
  • 1 bottle Crème de Cassis
  • 1 bottle Extra Dry sparkling wine; Champagne, Prosecco or other

Directions

  • Holding sugar cube with fingers or with tongs, soak cube with a few dashes of bitters and drop into the bottom of each flute.
  • Add just enough crème de cassis to cover the sugar cube.
  • Tilt the flute and finish filling the flute with sparkling wine, slowly and carefully as to preserve as many bubbles as possible.
  • Note: You may serve with a twisted zest of lemon as well. Use Chambord to make Kir Imperial (Drop in a raspberry or 2)

Notes

Often confused with a Kir Royal (Crème de Cassis and White Wine). Kir Pétillant is made with Champagne or other sparkling wine. It is also closely related to the Kir Imperial made with a raspberry liquor such as Chambord.
