Inspired by a raspberry liqueur made in France in the 17th century, today's Chambord is a sweet combination of red and black raspberries, vanilla, and XO cognac. This traditional liqueur is produced in the French province of Chambord (hence the name) at a real-life chateau (that means castle).
Add a dash of Chambord to champagne to step it up a notch. It's also makes for a great twist on a Manhattan, a French martini, or even in a refreshing, fruity vodka cocktail with lime juice. The addition of this versatile liqueur to our bar cart has made experimenting with our favorite spirits a lot of fun. As with most liqueur, store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight to preserve flavor.
