Kir Royale

How to pour them

I thought you might like to see some vrai Kir Royale.

I’m not sure if the googlers of Keir Royale are looking for me, or are mis-spelling the drink in a frustrated desire to find out how to make it.

Here, you can kill two birds with one stone.

Just put a splash of Crème de Cassis at the bottom of a glass, fill with champagne, but not good champagne or you’ll be masking the taste of an expensive and delicious nectar.

Sip slowly and chat, preferably outdoors, with friends and/or family.

I hope those of you who are googling for the drink, but find me instead, can now –

a) spell it properly
b) make it
c) read my blog anyway

    Does this stem from your site meter readings? It’s very funny, anyway.

    I wonder if I can post this time, comments to you don’t want to work from work :-(

  4. Much more glamorous than the reasons that bring some readers over to mine – “Help baby started solids poo now green” has been cropping up for weeks now in my Google stats. Anyway, cheers!
