Here is a simple sweet and fruity twist to Pique; Pique Royal.
When the Marquis of Lorne's team suggested to substitute Champagne with Pique, I was sold. Not only for the combination of flavour and texture but for how ironic this take on Kir Royal sound to me.
Piquette is a farmer's drink, and has a long way to go (in France) to loose its unpleasant (peasant) drink reputation, while Champagne is the absolute luxury associated drink.
This playful and humorous take on a classic cocktail is a fun and unconventional way to subvert expectations and add a touch of irony in the recipe.
In a champagne glass:
A dash of Crème de cassis.
Top up with Pique.
No shaker, no strain, no ice. Option to garnish with a berry of your choice to make it extra Royal.
PS: Feel free to adjust quantities of Crème de cassis to your taste but I'd recommend to keep it under 10mL.
