A Tale Of Cocktails #1

Kir Imperial
4 1/2 oz champagne
1/2 oz chambord
Taste: 7
Look: 6
Cost: 6
Name: 8
Prep: 10
Alcohol: 4
Overall: 6.7
General Comments: Fairly impressive, overall.  It's certainly easy to make - indeed nothing's ever gonna get easier until I persuade the council to install taps providing hot and cold running pina colada.  It also looks quite nice, albeit a little bit dull (the price you pay for ease of preparation, I guess).  The same is true of the taste, really.  It's raspberry-tinged taste is genuinely quite nice, but a bit uninspiring; you can get sparkling fruit wines that are very similar, which is a little disappointing, especially considering the cost.

On the other hand, it did get The Other Half drunk pretty quickly, so it has that going for it.  Nice name, too.
