The last time hubby made a BevMo run, I asked him to get a small bottle of Chambord. In browsing for Cocktail Thursday, I have come across a number of recipes that call for Chambord, and we don’t have it in our bar, so I figured it was time to stock up.
But, when it came time to test a recipe for this Thursday, I had a hard time finding a great cocktail — go figure. All I found were recipes for chocolate raspberry martinis (blech), some variation on the cosmopolitan (been there, done that, over it), and drinks with filthy names that made me think of a 21-year-old ordering a shot in a sleazy bar. No thanks.
Then I ran across this post with a bunch of great Chambord cocktails. There are at least a couple of recipes on that list I intend to try, but the Chambord Caipirovska sounded best, and I had everything on hand already, so I went for it.
It’s definitely going to be a repeat player around here. I just hope Nora doesn’t mind that I appropriated a few of her raspberries!
Based on this recipe
2 oz vodka
1/2 oz Chambord
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
3 fresh raspberries
Muddle raspberries in the bottom of a shaker. Add ice and other ingredients. Shake well and strain into a martini glass.
