The Cardinal Cocktail is simply a Kir made with red wine. This is a simple way to dress up a less desirable red wine that you don't find your favorite but you couldn't bear to see go to waste. The creme de cassis also adds some delicious sweetness to a Merlot or Pinot Noir that you may find a bit too dry for your taste at the time. One thing is for certain, for wine lovers a bottle of cassis is a fantastic and easy way to spice up the average glass of vino.

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz creme de cassis
  • red wine

Preparation:

  1. Pour the creme de cassis into a wine glass filled with ice.
  2. Fill with red wine.
