    I have a Chambord that dates back to 1985 it was given to me as a gift it has the original crown on the lid...Is it still good and how do I find out

    As far as I know kir royal is made with creme de cassis .which give to drink a good taste

    Cassis is Black Currant liqueur, chambord is raspberry liqueur.
    The Kir/Kir Royale is classically made with Creme de Cassis

    Also, cassis is at a higher proof. I'm not sure if that matters though.

  • Jules posted 4 years ago

    The way I have made it is with cassis, because Chambord seems to be a little too pungent. Its' raspberry flavor is a little more intense. You can make them either way; it depends on the customers palette. I agree with the Bellini issue though. White peach takes a little of the intensity out of the Bellini. I usually like to use fresh ingredients; however, they are not always available. Hope that kind of helps.

    I have a question. We waiters like to pretend we know everything but sometimes we need help. Why is it that some people ask for their Kir/Kir Royale with Creme de Cassis vesus Chambord?

    Are they both raspberry liquers and therefore, it doesn't really matter?

    Is making a Kir with creme to casssis unorthodox? Is it like making a Bellini with frozen white peach puree instead of the real stuff?

    Help! And check out my artictle about my VIRGIN KIR ROYALE request!
