Ostend Fizz Royale

Ostend Fizz Royale cocktail, with kirsch, creme de cassis, and sparkling white (or rosé) wine

The Ostend Fizz Royale is a Kir Royale riff from the early 20th century, dug up by Spirits columnist Jason Wilson at The Washington Post.

Unlike the Kir Royale and its many imitators, the Ostend Fizz Royale recipe has the non-sparkling-wine ingredients shaken first, rather than just poured straight into the glass. This helps to water them down a bit, and keeps the flavors from being too sweet and cloying.

If you happen to have a sparkling rosé instead of a sparkling white, don’t worry! It’ll taste great.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake the kirsch and crème de cassis with ice. Strain into an ice-filled tall glass and top with sparkling wine.
