For another drink that is perfect for celebrating, try this hibiscus champagne cocktail. It has an edible blossom in the glass to make it a bit of a showstopper.
Chambord champagne cocktail for Valentine’s Day
Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur. It’s on the sweeter side, so you’ll want to use a dry champagne for this cocktail. Look for anything labeled “brut” and you’re on the right track.
These are the coupe glasses that I used. They are the perfect glassware for this drink. It is a classic design, so they’ll never go out of style. You’ll also need a bar set for cocktails or, at the very least, a cocktail shaker and a shot glass to measure the Chambord and the vodka.
Get some cocktail picks to skewer the blackberries for garnish. I like to match the garnish with the drink, so I wouldn’t use something like citrus or herbs, because those flavors aren’t in the cocktail.
That was something I learned when I was in culinary school – the garnish should reflect the flavors of the dish. That also carries over into libations.
Vodka champagne spritzer
To cut the alcohol in this drink and make it a little lighter, you could easily turn it into a Chambord spritz. Add a few ounces of club soda or any sparkling water that you like.
I would suggest using either a plain sparkling water, or for flavored, stick with a berry flavored water so the flavor of the drink isn’t altered too much.
Chambord Valentine’s cocktail
To make this drink, you’ll add the huckleberry vodka and Chambord to a cocktail shaker with some crushed ice. Shake it up until it’s icy cold, then divide into two coupe glasses.
Top each glass with champagne and serve immediately while the champagne is still effervescent. If you want to make your Chambord champagne cocktails ahead of time, you can pour the vodka and Chambord into the glasses and refrigerate. Top with bubbly right before serving.
