Share post:

Chambord

Chambord Royale de France is a cognac-based liqueur that is a blend of raspberry, blackberry, black currant, Madagascar vanilla and XO cognac. Chambord is just 16.5% alcohol (33 proof) and is intended to be used as a mixer. Straight, Chambord is very sweet and not very suitable to sipping. Chambord is an ideal mixing companion with a dry champagne or sparkling wine. Chambord and Champagne has a nice ring to it and makes a refreshing summer quaff. Indeed, Chambord advertises its product as a natural partner with champagne.
