Squid Mixes: Kir Royale
For our second date, my wife and I watched The Philadelphia Story in her New York apartment and drank kirs. The movie has been a part of our family holiday traditions ever since (see review here), though we have not had kirs along with it quite so faithfully. We spent Christmas week in Montreal so, as a continuation of our Advent explorations, we picked up a bottle of creme de cassis, a delicious black currant liqueur, from Quebec. It seemed as good an excuse as any to experiment with kirs.
