Blackberry Kir

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 0 minutes
Servings: 6

Kir, the classic French aperitif, is traditionally made by adding a splash of crème de cassis to a glass of chilled dry white wine. Rich blackberry liqueur brings a new twist and distinctive flavor dimension to this popular–and effortless–wine cocktail.  


  • 6 Tbs. blackberry liqueur 
  • 1 bottle (750ml) Sauvignon Blanc or Chablis, well chilled 


Pour 1 Tbs. of the blackberry liqueur into each wineglass. Fill each glass two-thirds full with wine (about 4 fl. oz./125ml). Serve immediately. Serves 6.
