If the luscious flavor of black raspberries screams your name, then these Chambord cocktails are right up your alley.
From Cointreau to limoncello, there are a ton of cocktail mixers to choose from.
However, there’s something about the French liqueur Chambord that is undeniably special.
Perhaps it’s the fancy bottle that looks fitting enough for royalty. Or maybe it’s the deep luscious flavor of black raspberry.
Whatever it is, Chambord is truly one of a kind!
If you’ve never bought a bottle, you probably don’t know what to do with it. Don’t worry, I’m here for you.
I’ve gone ahead and compiled this list of Chambord recipes so you can get inventive with your cocktails and mix things up in Chambord style.
1. Chambord Bramble Cocktail
The great thing about brambles is how creative you can be with them.
With a simple base of gin, lemon, and simple syrup, there are a myriad of ways to mix up a smashing bramble.
If you prefer yours with raspberries, you’ll love this concoction. This bramble cocktail is bursting with raspberries!
It’s got a deep black raspberry flavor from the Chambord and a few fresh raspberries for a garnish.
You could mix things up and opt for a different hard liquor. But I think gin is the ideal choice to pair with this fruit-forward drink.
Whether you go with gin or not, a splash of lemon juice and a hint of simple syrup help to keep the flavors light and bright.
2. Sparkling Black Raspberry Chambord Drink With Lime and Tonic
It doesn’t take a ton of crazy ingredients to make a sensationally crafted cocktail and this recipe is proof.
It calls for three simple ingredients including Chambord, tonic, and lime. It takes about 3 minutes to make and doesn’t require a cocktail shaker.
But what I love most is how this drink lets the Chambord shine!
However, this liqueur can be intense by itself. Tonic water and lime will help cut through the richness without distracting from its amazing taste.
You can also use lemon if you don’t have any limes. It will change the flavor slightly, but both are equally great.
This drink is particularly marvelous if you love the flavor of black raspberry, but want an easy cocktail recipe that doesn’t require pro status expertise.
3. Chambord Spritz
A spritz is a wine-based cocktail that calls for bitters and sparkling water.
It’s commonly enjoyed as an aperitif and has all the ideal ingredients to pair with a splash of Chambord.
Crisp and dry, this Chambord spritz is big on the fruit with the right hint of sweetness.
This recipe uses dry white wine which is less sweet. It also uses soda water, making it extra fizzy.
The Chambord gives this drink a gorgeous color and makes it taste divine.
This is an excellent choice for a pre-dinner drink when you’re feasting with good company.
4. Chambord Raspberry Margarita
I love a good margarita, especially when the weather starts to warm up.
Beach trips, barbecues, and tacos nights, there are so many reasons to mix up a margarita.
While there’s an incredible array of variations, this one is delightful for kicking back and relaxing with a cocktail.
The citrus notes in the Chambord meld seemingly with the Cointreau.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a margarita without tequila and fresh lime juice.
When choosing tequila, blanco is best for this drink. Chambord is very rich, so it will overpower the intricacies of reposado tequila.
Oh, and I highly recommend serving this one on the rocks. It’s also spectacular served in a glass rimmed in freeze-dried raspberries.
5. Raspberry Love Valentine’s Day Cocktail
Between the elegant gold crested bottle and luscious raspberry flavor, Chambord is the prime liqueur for Valentine’s Day.
If you’re searching for the right cocktail recipe to serve your sweetheart, go with this one. It’s got Valentine’s Day written all over it.
You’ll mix Chambord, bourbon, and lemon-lime soda in a cocktail shaker, then strain. A few fresh strawberries make the perfect garnish.
If you’re not big on soda water, you can replace this with sparkling water and an ounce of lemon or lime juice.
I think raspberry-flavored sparkling water will also pair well.
Lush and fizzy, this cocktail is a must to woo over your Valentine. Dare I say, it may be even better than flowers and chocolates.
6. Chamb’ and Bubbly
If you guessed this drink features Chambord and sparkling wine, you guessed right.
This is a version of a Kir Royale, which features Chambord rather than creme de cassis. It also has an optional lemon for a garnish.
Garnish or not, the duo of sparkling wine and Chambord are an elegant combination perfect for a celebration.
Sure, you could simply pour some bubbly into a cocktail glass and pass that around.
But the addition of Chambord is the ideal mixer to make sparkling wine extra special.
It infuses sparkling wine with a fruity twist that’s classy and tantalizing. Since Chambord is rich, you’ll only need a splash.
While this recipe doesn’t call for it, I think a few fresh raspberries will make this cocktail a sensational hit.
7. Perfect French Martini
How do you make the perfect French martini? You follow this cocktail recipe.
You’ll start by taking premium vodka and combining it with Chambord and fresh pineapple juice. You’ll also add a pinch of quality sea salt.
Sea salt may sound like an odd ingredient, but trust me on this one. It balances out all the sweet flavors from the Chambord and pineapple juice.
Well-rounded and refined, this French martini is fruity with a subtle tanginess that’s begging for a garnish.
Of course, fresh pineapple and raspberries are obvious choices. But a citrus peel also pairs well as it adds some more complexity.
Since this martini does require salt, I recommend shaking all the ingredients until it fully dissolves. Then serve in a martini glass to match.
