Kir Royale Ice Cream is a unique and interesting recipe; an Epicurus original, tested again and again (we can’t get enough, honestly).  It has a rich, creamy and fruity flavor with the crisp taste of fine champagne.  Brilliant for entertaining.  Kir Royale is a sweet, delicious blending of currant flavored Creme de Cassis and Champagne. Here it is used as a sauce over this ice cream dessert.
