Ostend Fizz Royale | Cocktail Party

Ostend Fizz Royale

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.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
