Creme de cassis sour

If you are a fan of the classic Kir Royal, then you are probably familiar with the main ingredient that gives this cocktail its characteristic taste: crème de cassis. Rich with the deep notes of blackcurrant, this liqueur adds a luxurious hint of sweetness to the sparkling Champagne. Adding mint syrup enriches the liqueur with a subtle freshness, which gives a refreshing twist to the drink.

Although mint is preferred, it is possible to experiment with other syrup variations. This way you can give a personal touch to the cocktail without compromising the culinary tradition. Whether spicy, floral or even citrusy syrups, each variety can add a unique layer of complexity to your Kir Royal, making the possibilities for enjoyment endless.

Cheers! Enjoy but drink in moderation.

If you can't get any protein for whatever reason, go for aquafaba. This liquid is in a can of chickpeas. It has the same frothy effect as egg white, and is otherwise tasteless. So it won't detract from your cocktail.
