Chambord margarita

I planned to try out the Italian Sidecar from Rufus’ Guide tonight, but, with my liquor cabinet depleted since the move, I found myself without brandy or cognac — oops! Back to the drawing board, and time to get creative with ingredients on hand.

We all know about my recent fascination with Chambord, and with summer coming up, a margarita seemed like a good option, so why not a Chambord margarita?

Why not indeed.

With Cinco de Mayo coming up soon, this is a great drink to sip on the back porch… that is, if you don’t mind a little French in your Mexican. Go ahead and insert your own dirty joke here. I know there’s one in here somewhere.

Chambord Margarita
Inspired by this recipe found on Pinterest

2 oz silver tequila
1 oz Chambord
1 oz Grand Marnier or Cointreau
4 oz sour mix*

Combine all ingredients over ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake briskly until cold, and strain into a salt-rimmed glass over ample ice.

* Homemade is so much better than store-bought. Mix two parts simple syrup with one part lime juice and one part lemon juice.

5 Thoughts on “Chambord margarita

  1. You had me at margarita. Do you ever visit the SITS girls? They have a screamingly funny commercial up with a fireman, a kitten, and a margarita. It’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages.

  2. While I am ashamed by your liquor cabinet, I am tickled you want our sidecar. This looks awesome too.

    • You should definitely feel sorry for me. I don’t even have a proper bar right now — can you imagine?! I intend to rectify the situation as soon as possible. We will rebuild.
