The Cardinal Cocktail is simply a Kir made with red wine and it is an easy way to dress up a less-than-desirable red wine that you cannot bear to see go to waste. The creme de cassis also adds some delicious sweetness to reds like Merlot or Pinot Noir that may be a bit too dry for your taste at the time. For wine lovers, a bottle of cassis is a fantastic and easy way to spice up the average glass of vino.
- 1 ounce creme de cassis
- 5 ounces red wine
- Pour the creme de cassis into a wine glass filled with ice.
- Fill with red wine.
