Looks innocent, huh? It's not. errrrrrp!
I had never tried Chambord before, but after buying it for another cocktail, i fell in love with it, it's so good!! The "Cham Cham" recipe was in the little booklet attached to th ebottle, so I did a search to see if it was on here. I didn't add the fresh raspberry, but I LOVE the drink itself! Very tasty! :)
We enjoyed this on New Year's Eve with some friends. Wonderful combination! Everyone really liked it!
Served these to all the girls at our New Years party and they were a hit! Very festive and much easier to make than anything that involves a shaker!
My MIL and I thought we made this one up, it's our cocktail of choice for every get together! We called it the Cha Cha. How funny.
Onolicious! I use frozen raspberries, a few of them. I also rim the glass with melted sugar. Melt small amount of sugar in a small sauce pan. Then dip rim of glass in to sugar, and let set. Forms a solid coating of sugar, that you can lick, between sips.
Unlike a plain Kir which is white wine and crÃ¨me de cassis, champagne and Chambord is called a Kir Royale (the Royale I suppose being the higher end liqueur and champers instead of the unfizzy stuff.) Under the heading of too much info, it was invented by the Mayor of Dijon, Canon Felix Kir (1876-1968). It is my favorite drink and I order it everywhere. Thanks, SusieQusie, for helping spread the word!
I served this along with appetizers at a little get-together prior to a holiday concert. So festive! A couple of people did not want the additional liquor, so I also made a few with raspberry syrup, which also worked well. I like the liquer better, myself.
This is my special occasion drink of choice as well!! Elegant and simple. The taste is refreshing. I recommend everyone to try this.
