Bubbly, sparkling Champagne. There is no beverage more festive or more associated with celebrations than Champagne. And what’s New Year’s Eve without Champagne?
But adding a mere teaspoon of raspberry liqueur to your Champagne elevates the celebration to another level. Chambord is a premium black raspberry liqueur named for the French town where it had been made since 1685 from cognac twice infused with raspberries, blackberries, and currant along with Madagascar vanilla and secret spices. Best paired with a crisp French Champagne, the color and the taste of this cocktail is joyful and jolly; everything you’d want as you ring in the New Year
A half hour before guests arrive, chill bottles of Champagne in cooler or bucket filled with one half ice, one half water. The serving temperature for Champagne should be approximately 43-48 degrees Fahrenheit. Drop one blackberry or two raspberries in each Champagne flute and carefully add one teaspoon of Chambord onto the fruit. When guests arrive, pop the first cork and fill glasses. The golden Champagne will turn dark pink and the berries will float to the top, lifted by the effervescent bubbles.
CHEERS! HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!
