Here are two French inspired holiday cocktails made with cassis. Blackcurrant (cassis in French) is a berry that has only been grown in France since the 16th century. This French liqueur has been produced for over 150 years, and it’s the star behind these sparkling holiday cocktails courtesy of Le Relais Bernard Loiseau.
The five-star Le Relais Bernard Loiseau and its two Michelin-starred restaurants have attracted gourmands since the late chef bought this treasured hotel in 1982. Located in Burgundy’s heart, the Le Relais Bernard Loiseau is befittingly a hallmark destination.
They have graciously offered to serve up two delicious holiday drinks for Honest Cooking’s readers.
