Named after Felix Kir, the Mayor of Dijon who apparently regularly served this drink at official functions, it's a riff on the original Kir cocktail - but made with Champagne rather than white wine. Other variations include the Kir Impérial which switched the Créme de cassis for Chambord and a Kir Pétillant which uses sparkling wine instead of Champagne.
- 12.5ml Créme de cassis
- Twist of lemon peel to garnish
Add the cassis to a Champagne flute and top up with Champagne. Garnish with a twist of lemon peel.
