A French country party

It rained and rained for a fortnight, or it nearly did on my birthday! At last the sun came out and the day began…..

DSC_0361 Kir avec Cassis – a mix of cassis and white wine is a typical French cocktail, cassis is a sweet dark red liqueur made from blackcurrants originating in Dijon. Kir Royale is cassis mixed with champagne or a sparkling wine –┬ámy favourite!
