Comment:

Canon Félix Kir's traditional white wine and cassis aperitif with added vodka 'oomph'. A barspoon of pisco adds complexity to this cocktail but if available instead use Marc de Bourgogne, the eau-de-vie Canon Kir would have chosen.

Origin:

Created in 2004 by Simon Difford, London, England. This cocktail was inspired by the classic Kir, popularised by Canon Kir, Mayor of Dijon, France (1946-1968). At his receptions he served an aperitif made with the locally produced crème de cassis and Bourgogne Aligoté white wine. The concoction eventually became known as Kir aperitif.
