I love to use cranberry juice and a little sauce mixed together to replace the classic cassis for a "Kir Royal". Cranberries (and a little honey) are a great match for sparkling wine. You don't need an expensive wine here. In fact, the cheaper the better. You DO need something dry, not sweet, for optimum results.

Ingredients

Directions

In a small bowl, combine the cranberry juice and the cranberry sauce and whisk until fully blended. If too thick to mix with the Champagne, thin it out slightly with a little more cranberry juice. Stir in the honey and the lemon juice. 

Divide the cranberry mixture between 4 glasses and pour in the Champagne, stirring with a spoon as you pour so the cranberry integrates and doesn't just sit on the bottom of the glasses. Serve immediately.
