This cocktail has become an iconic symbol of French culture and is often served at special occasions such as weddings and anniversaries. The drink was created by Canon Felix Kir, a Catholic priest in Dijon, France. He wanted to create a signature drink that would be associated with his name, hence the name “Kir Royale”. This cocktail is easy to make and can be enjoyed by both experienced mixologists and novice drinkers alike.
