(Closed) Wine or Champagne Cocktails? Help…

The two obvious drinks that spring to mind are Kir Royals and Sangria. Sangria seems wrong to me as a distinctively ‘cocktail hour’ drink though. I love it, but wine plus juice plus fruit plus soda water spells long hot summer evening of drinking, not pre-dinner drinks. Wine is and should be just fine by itself for your cocktail hour. (If you want something a bit different, look into rose. There are some really fabulous dry, crisp roses being produced at the moment.) However kir royals are a lovely way of sprucing up a glass of sparkling wine. All you need is the sparkling wine and a bottle of cassis/framboise. The proportion is, I believe, 1/3 frambiose and 2/3 champagne and the result is fruity and refreshing while not appearing infantile. I’m thinking about including it as an option for our cocktail hour, alongside wines, beers and maybe mixed drinks.
