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.
