Kir Royale

Created by: Lauren Saylor, A Fabulous Fete

A New Year’s Eve celebration just isn’t complete without a sip or two of champagne! This recipe is a great one that pleases champagne lovers and champagne skeptics alike. Plus, it only takes a few minutes to prepare.

Try it out beforehand to get your Chambord ratio right (it gets overwhelmingly sweet with too much!).

  • 1 bottle of Champagne
  • 4 oz. Chambord
  • 1 Lemon
  1. Pour 1 ounce of Chambord into the bottom of each glass.
  2. Top with champagne to taste (more Champagne for a dry cocktail, less for a sweeter one).
  3. Using a knife, cut away 2”-3” pieces of lemon peel, avoiding the white part of the skin. Twist over your cocktail and drop in. Enjoy!
