  • 6 fl. oz. Champagne or other sparkling wine
  • Crème de cassis (black currant liqueur)
  • lemon twist for garnish

Preparation

  • Fill a flute glass with the Champagne. Add a dash of crème de cassis and garnish with a lemon twist.

    I like to use my homemade cassis (from Larousse Gastronomique) which makes this extra special.
