L’ apéro French Style: Mimosas & Kir Royale!


L’apéro short for l’apéritif is the French classy U.S Happy Hour in between the end of work day and dinner, or during my favorite brunch on the weekends, the perfect time to enjoy a cocktail or “prendre l’apéro”  and enjoy! 

Kir royale

My favorite French cocktail or apéro is:  Kir Royal!  Kir is a delicious  mix of white wine such as a Bourgone Aligoté ( or any nice white wine you prefer) and blackcurrant liqueur or crème de cassis. Replace white wine with a festive bubbly mix of ice-chilled champagne and a dash of crème de cassis and voilà enjoy Kir Royal! ( garnish with a lemon twist, optional.)

However, my ultimate favorite fun cocktail , especially on the weekend is the ever bubbly Mimosa! A simple blend of champagne bubbly and fresh orange juice  or grapefruit juice ever-flowing during California Champagne Brunch… or anytime!

Mimosa

 Enjoy Life! Celebrate! and A la votre! Cheers!
