New Year's Wishes

Here's to a happy New Year everybody! May 2010 bring you and yours joy and prosperity.

Frozen Kir Royales
Printable Recipe

1 cup Minted Black Currant Sorbet
1 750 milliliter bottle sparkling wine, chilled

Scoop the sorbet into 4 champagne flutes. Divide the sparkling wine among the flutes and serve immediately.

Serves 4. Either store-bought currant or raspberry sorbet would make fine a substitute for the Minted Black Currant Sorbet. The traditional Kir Royale is made with crème de cassis and Champagne.

I generally don't drink. But I do sometimes make an exception for the Kir Royale. Thanks for the unique recipe and the beautiful photo. Happy New Year!

My mouth started watering at the pic, as i had these at a wedding reception. It was very posh, and very boring up to that point, held in a villa in Regent's Park in London. There was a delay, so another round of aperitifs was handed out. Suddenly, all the posh melted away, and we all had a simply wonderful time.

A gorgeous variation is peach schnapps over a strawberry half, topped up with champagne. The strawberry kicks like a mule.

I just spent the last few days reading all of your blog and I have enjoyed it very much. I am having a hard time choosing which recipe to make first. I love the pictures and appreciate the Pacific NW bent as I am up in Seattle myself.

Keep up the good work,
