3 wineries debuting HV Cider Kir Royale

Cider Kir Royale
I recently wrote about the emergence of cassis as a specialty item produced by several Hudson Valley wineries. Now, in time for Cider Week which is running through next Saturday, October 21, three of them have introduced Hudson Valley Cider Kir Royale.

The drink is made with four parts HV cider to one part HV cassis, a takeoff on the classic Kir Royale of France that is made with cassis and Champagne.

The wineries involved are Brookview Station Winery at Goold Orchards in Castleton, Rensselaer County; Hudson-Chatham Winery in Ghent, Columbia County, and Warwick Valley Winery and Distillery in Warwick, Orange County. All three make apple cider as well as cassis, and are debuting the drink in their tasting rooms this weekend.

Of course, you can make the new cocktail by using any apple cider and cassis. Here's the full list of producers.
