kir normand

We discovered this in Normandy. It replaces the champagne in a Kir Royale with cider as is fitting Normandy’s agricultural specialty. The splash of calvados (apple brandy) gives it a little extra kick.

2¼ oz hard cider
½ oz crème de cassis
½ oz calvados

Combine over ice in an old fashioned glass.

Alternate: Chill ingredients, and serve without ice in champagne flute.
