💭 What is a Chambord Kir Royale?
This drink is a riff on the Kir Royale, which is a riff on the Kir. Let's start with talking about what a Kir cocktail is.
A Kir is a cocktail made from dry white wine and crème de cassis (a blackcurrant liqueur). It dates back to the 19th century.
A Kir Royale is a cocktail made from champagne and crème de cassis.
Now, we get to the Chambord Kir Royale. For this drink, we use champagne (or other bubbles) and Chambord liqueur.
🔴 What is Chambord?
Chambord is a liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France. It's made of raspberries and black raspberries, has a beautiful vibrant color, and sweet flavor. It also comes in a distinctive spherical bottle.
Only THREE of them! You'd be hard pressed to find an easier drink to put together.
- Chambord - It's a really delicious raspberry liquer!
- Bubbly - Use whatever you prefer here. I usually end up using Prosecco, mostly because it's very affordable.
- Orange twist - A little twist of orange peel really makes everything pop.
👩🏻🍳 How to make a Chambord Kir Royale
It almost couldn't be easier.
Start by pouring your Chambord into the bottom of a champagne flute. Top that off with bubbles.
After that, if you're feeling fancy (and you are), garnish your drink with an orange twist.
🕔 When should I drink this cocktail?
Basically, any time you feel like it 😉
I think it's pretty perfect for New Year's Eve, though. It's got bubbly in it (the traditional drink with which to toast), but is elevated just a bit with the addition of Chambord.
You do you, though. Sip on one of these bad boys whenever the urge strikes!
