The Kir Royale
Both my parents have been drinking this for as long as I can remember. Never is there champagne in our house without a little splash of berry pink liqueur at the bottom to sweeten it and make it more beautiful.
So I suppose I just followed suit, and champagne by itself now seems like dinner without dessert. It’ll do the job but not as elegantly or as satisfyingly.
A bit bubbly, a bit sweet and a bit pink. What more could you ask for?
It’s well worth giving its cousin the Kir (white wine and creme de cassis) a try as well. This is just as yummy but a bit more casual (meaning you can have it everyday).
On a slightly different note The Vodka Soda. This is definitely my general drink of choice. It’s just vodka and fizzy water so you don’t become crazy and hyper after having seventeen of them at the pub (I have definitely suffered some sugar comedowns after having an orange juice or coca cola mixer all evening). It doesn’t have the bitterness and additives of tonic (even slimline) and it’s completely sugar free!
