KirRoyale_400When I lived in Paris, twilight was cocktail hour. We would gather on the sofa sipping our drinks, laughing and listening to jazz. My very favorite is the Kir Royale, a wonderful French cocktail composed of champagne and crème de cassis liqueur. From At Home with Madame Chic.

It is my cocktail of choice whenever I’m out. When I have one, I am transported to Paris, sitting in one of those gilded and glittery bars sounded by chic intellects. Sigh.
