Toast to Elegance with Every Bubbly Berry Sip


  • 0.5 oz creme de cassis
  • champagne to top
  • fresh raspberry for garnish


  1. Divide the 0.5 oz creme de cassis in two champagne flutes.
  2. Top with champagne (or sparkling wine, or prosecco).
  3. Drop in a couple of raspberries and serve.


This recipe essentially calls for a splash of creme de cassis in a glass of champagne. The exact measurements are not important, this is made to taste. As long as there's a hint of berries you're good.

Chambord is a good option in place of creme de cassis, but it's quite delicate and you may need to use more.
