"before dinner i just love drinking a kir royale, it gets me in the mood..."
This is an easy, tasty and light cocktail made with champagne or sparkling wine and creme de cassis which is a blackcurrant liqueur.
This is a great aperitif, this means that it's great to drink it before dinner, the bubbles of the champagne get you in the right mood and the taste is dry so it doesn't interfere with the food flavors.
If you don't have champagne you can use any sparkling wine, the only things important is that it's dry and not sweet and that the champagne must be cold!
