Bar’Lees Wine and Whiskey Bar’s Cherry-Filled Kir

Kir
Bar’Lees Wine and Whiskey Bar
(one serving)
â–   1 oz crème de cassis
â–   6 oz Chardonnay wine
   (Chablis, for example)
Make sure both liquors are chilled at about 50ºF. Pour the crème de cassis first, and then the wine. Serve in an all-purpose wine glass, or in a Bourgogne (Burgundy) wine glass.
“This is one of the classic national apéritifs of France and is named after Félix Kir, mayor of Dijon, Burgundy [from 1945 to 1968],” explains partner/manager Andre Cohen. “Variations include the Kir Pêche, with crème of peach; the Kir Mure, with blackberry crème; and, of course, the famous Kir Royale with Champagne instead of Chardonnay.”
