On your wedding day, you should be king and queen of the day. It is all about you and your happiness. A day you will always remember, and a day that everybody wants to remember. Such a day asks for a festive drink, that is easy to make for a large group of people. We present you, the Kir Royale! The perfect marriage between champagne and Bols Crème de Cassis.
Felix Kir was the mayor of Dijon and a pioneer in the twinning movement after the second
World War. The twinning movement intended to foster friendship and
understanding between different cultures and cities. Some of the cities that
were twinned after the Second World War are still ‘married’ today. He offered white
wine with crème de cassis at receptions to visiting delegations. It was then
that people started calling the drink the ‘Kir’. When they changed the white
wine for champagne it became the ‘Kir Royale’.
A drink designed to make cities and nations come together, is the perfect drink to serve at a party where two people come together. It is easy to make, and great to serve!
