Chambord Liqueur

Fruit Liqueurs — France

4.0
4.0 out of 5 stars
A change of pace tonight while the wife wraps Christmas presents and I help by pouring her (and myself) a cordial and staying out of her way. Take raspberries and blueberries, press then together, add white sugar and place the juices in a leather pouch and you have the comprised aromas. Concentrated, sweetened fruit juice. Black cherries, blueberry port (like a local Long Island Duckwalk Vineyards Blueberry Port) with a dash of vanilla. A saccharine fruity finish with a touch of woody dryness. If you like berry fruits and you like sweet things, then Chambord is the perfect liqueur for you. Drink neat or over ice. Add some to Screwball whiskey for a PB&J. Enjoy this this Christmas or for anytime for after dinner treat. [Tasted: 12/16/19]

    I use this to make my wife’s French martinis. Only has a shelf life of about 6 months unless you keep it in a refrig.

    @Scott_E. Excellent! I'll let you know how it goes

    @jonwilkinson7309 my wife and other family members, non whiskey drinkers love the PB&J. Use like a 3:1 ratio for Screwball to Chambord. Adjust from there.

    @PBMichiganWolverine Sure, no doubt; will doIt is extremely sweet. Dessert in a glass.

    I’ve never heard of this—-but, fruit and berries...can’t go wrong. Sounds like a worthy pour. Save one pour for me—-next shipment of samples, I’ll give it a try

    Great tip on the PB&J! My wife really likes Skrewball, so I think she'll dig Skrewball and Chambord.
