Fresh raspberries macerated in crème de cassis and then bathed in chilled Champagne, with just a hint of grenadine for extra flavor, make this a sumptuous and eye-catching aperitif for a special meal.


  • 4 oz. fresh raspberries
  • 3 Tbs. crème de cassis
  • 1 bottle (750ml) dry Champagne, chilled
  • 4 to 6 tsp. grenadine syrup (optional)


Put the raspberries in a small bowl, add the crème de cassis and let macerate for at least 30 minutes.

Divide the raspberries among 6 Champagne flutes and pour in the well-chilled Champagne. Add grenadine to taste and serve immediately. Serves 6.
