Kir aka Chablis Cassis
Crème de cassis (Leroux brand is good.)
French Chablis, of good-quality, (or Champagne, if you want sparkle)
In a large Burgundy-style wine glass place: 1 tablespoon crème de cassis. Fill each glass half full of well-chilled, French Chablis or a nice Champagne if you want sparkle. This drink must be served icy cold, but it should not have ice in it. Chill your wine and the glasses before serving.
This is a wonderful aperitif which Peter and Sue first experienced in Paris, 1979.
