Every once in a while, there is a cocktail that is pretty self-explanatory, and “champagne and Chambord” clearly describes the main ingredients of the drink itself. Luckily, there is beauty in its simplicity, and the rich Chambord really goes a long way to compliment the champagne. It is often viewed as a brunch cocktail, similar to a mimosa.

It is a light drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day, which is a great aspect of champagne: that it could be consumed at any time without it ever being a real “burden”. There are all sorts of formal events that might call for champagne, and this particular drink is a good way to provide a twist and extra flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of Chambord
  • 6 ounces of chilled champagne

Preparation:

  1. Pour the Chambord into the champagne flute.
  2. Fill with the chilled champagne.

Equipment:

  • Champagne flute

For garnish lovers, the raspberry makes for an elegant way to top the cocktail off. There are variations that include prosecco or even adding actual raspberries. There are all sorts of fruit drinks and wine drinks. A great way to think about the drink is as if it is a formal version of a sangria, because the champagne helps to add a sophisticated flair. Just like any drink, club soda could be added, although it is completely unnecessary, as the champagne adds the needed dryness to the drink.

Believe it or not, the Chambord tradition has been around for centuries, although the brand only was founded in the early 1980s. One way to immediately tell a Chambord bottle is its unique spherical shape. The shape of the bottle is modeled after a globus cruciger, which is a Christian symbol of authority that has been around for centuries. There are a few occasions where Christianity has an interesting relationship to liquor, and this happens to be one of them. Regardless, this particular cocktail is perfect for brunch. Drink up and enjoy!
