What is Chambord?
Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France. Chambord is made from XO Cognac. Cognac is a type of brandy that is produced in the Cognac region of France. “OX” indicates that the Cognac has been aged at least 6 years of age.
Chambord’s other flavor notes include red and black raspberries (obviously), but also black currant, Madagascar vanilla, citrus, honey, and baking spices (ginger, nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon). It is a sweet liqueur, so it pairs perfectly in a Chambord Spritz with a dry sparkling wine such as a brut prosecco or champagne.
Chambord can also make some pretty tasty shot drinks, like this Jam Donut Shot.
- Chambord raspberry liqueur – Chambord is easy to find at most liquor stores, and comes in a beautiful gold embellished, fancy bottle.
- Dry sparkling wine – I recommend a dry or brut prosecco or champagne. A dry or brut Cava, which is a Spanish sparkling wine, would also pair nicely as well.
- Seltzer soda water– I opted for plain sparkling water that I make in my SodaStream. If you want some extra flavor, you could try a berry-flavored seltzer water. Or, if you want to increase the percent ABV (alcohol by volume), you could add a hard seltzer for a little extra kick.
- Fresh raspberries and/or blackberries for garnish – This is technically optional, but in my opinion it really gives the cocktail a finishing touch.
If you end up with extra sparkling wine and want to save it, I recommend getting some bottle stoppers that are specifically made for sparkling wine and champagne.
They help retain the carbonation, so you can continue to enjoy your bubbles long after you’ve popped the cork. These are the ones that I own.
Step 1: Add the Chambord to a large wine glass filled with ice cubes.
Step 2: Top with dry sparkling wine or champagne.
Step 3: Add sparkling seltzer water or club soda.
Step 4: Garnish with berries of choice, optional.
Unopened, Chambord can last indefinitely. Once opened, you should try to consume within one year. After one year, the quality will start to degrade. Obviously, if you notice any off odors before that time period, you should toss and buy a new bottle of Chambord.
Chambord is 16.5% ABV (alcohol by volume), which makes it 33 proof. (Proof of a spirit always = double the ABV.)
Yes, you can drink Chambord straight. For best taste, I would sip it from a chilled glass. It is very sweet so take that into account with your personal taste preferences when pouring yourself a shot.
It does not have to be refrigerated, but you should keep all of your spirits in a cool, dark place to ensure the highest quality for the longest amount of time.
Yes, you can do that. I would recommend adding the Chambord and fresh berries to a large pitcher and chilling in the fridge. Add the sparkling wine and seltzer just prior to serving to prevent the cocktail from going flat.
