Why do we love the Kir Royale? Let us count the ways. It’s French. It’s so chic to drink. And it’s super easy to make – all you need is prosecco + crème de cassis.

But we’re always down to change it up a little. That’s why we had Marlene Thorne of Toronto bar Famous Last Words to dream up this twist on our go-to summer drink. Full (and very very easy) recipe below.

Step 1: Pour ¾ oz. of Chambord liqueur into a champagne flute. 

Step 2: Fill up a glass flute with prosecco. 

Step 3: Garnish with raspberry and fresh mint.
