Recipes for Cocktails with Chambord Raspberry Liqueur
1. Chambord 1800 Margarita Summer-Cocktail
Shake 2 oz tequila, 1 oz Cointreau liqueur, 1 oz Chambord, and 4 oz sweet-and-sour mix together with a few ice cubes. Strain into a margarita glass. Rim the glass with sea salt and garnish with a lemon rind.
2. Alcoholic Winter-Punch with Vodka & Champagne
In a shaker, mix 1½ oz of Absolut Ruby Red Vodka and champagne each, along with ½ oz of each of white wine (like Prosecco) and Chambord Raspberry Liqueur. Strain into a slim glass with ice cubes, and garnish with fresh raspberries.
For a quick Chambord ‘Kamikaze’, just omit the champagne, and wine, while increasing the quantity of vodka to 3 oz.
3. Basic Chambord Martini Drink
Shake well 1 oz Chambord Liqueur, 2 oz gin, 3-4 oz of any carbonated drink (like Sprite, Red Bull, or club soda), and sweet and sour mix (to taste). Garnish with a lemon rind before serving. If you prefer whiskey, you can replace the gin with Scotch whiskey (that won’t remain a ‘Martini,’ though).
4. Hot Chambord Black Coffee
Pour 5 oz of hot black coffee and 1 oz of Chambord in a coffee mug along with a tsp of brown sugar (or to taste). Stir mix gently. Float 1½ oz whipped cream on top. Serve before it gets cold.
Alternately, you can replace the coffee with the same quantity of hot drinking chocolate. But if you use sweetened chocolate, just omit the sugar. This one can be a good after-dinner drink, especially during fall or winter.
5. Red Christmas-Cocktail Mixed with Chambord
Blend Chambord Liqueur Royale Deluxe, Cognac brandy, and Bailey’s Irish Cream 1 oz each with a splash of grenadine and a tsp of whipped cream. Rim the glass with crushed ice and serve with a red straw in a pre-frozen glass. Top with red raspberries.
