Kir, is a traditional French cocktail made with white wine and crème de cassis (blackcurrant liqueur). It was originally called blanc-cassis, but is now named after Felix Kir a champion of the French Renaissance and mayor of Dijon, France. As mayor, he would order the drink during visits with foreign dignitaries.
This is a meadist twist on the simple Kir recipe.
6 oz. chilled dry mead (I used Maine HoneyMaker Dry Mead)
1 oz. crème de cassis
Easy – just pour the mead into a wine glass and add crème de cassis.
Enjoy a little piece of history.
