Kir

Kir cocktail with white wine and creme de cassis

This classic French drink has a long history under its original name (“Vin Blanc Cassis”), but it achieved global fame after World War II. The mayor of Dijon, France – Canon Felix Kir, a celebrated resistance fighter during the war – served this to countless diplomats and heads of state in the postwar years. The folks he served came home with a taste for what they called “Kirs,” and a family of cocktails was born.

Great drinks-great app

Great cocktail app. Very good list of drinks that actually are well made and tasty. I have used other apps that just were overloaded with tons of junk drinks. It feels like the creators of this app actually enjoyed making the drinks and decided which were good enough to add to the list. Really appreciate the perpetual updates drinks listing too. Hate paying for things more than once.
