The perfect cocktail for celebrations of all kind. The Kir Royale is a French cocktail typically made with sparkling wine and créme de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur), but why not give it a modern makeover by subbing in Raspberry Simple Syrup? I love any kind of cocktail that involves sparkling because it turns any occasion into a special one, especially this time of year when there are tons of things to celebrate!
Chilled sparkling wine
1/2 oz. Raspberry Simple Syrup
Fresh raspberries or lime wedges
Pour the Raspberry Simple Syrup in a champagne flute
Top with sparkling water at a 45 degree angle and stir to mix
Add a few fresh raspberries and a squeeze of lime if desired
