Looking for something unexpected to serve on Valentine’s Day, either for that someone special or a gathering of friends?
Chambord has a few suggestions designed with entertaining in mind.
The makers of the black raspberry liqueur – noted for its distinctively royal bottle – note that Chambord not only makes a lovely addition to the bar cart or tablescape but is “the go-to ingredient for impressing guests with easy-to-make at home cocktails.”
And it comes in mini (50ml) bottles that are “perfect for Galentine’s Day party takeaways,” the makers add, referring to Feb. 13, a day for ladies celebrating ladies.
We have long enjoyed a sip of Chambord for its rich and fruity flavor – an opinion reinforced by a recent sampling – and have to agree these simple cocktail recipes do indeed sound perfect for Galentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day celebrations. Cheers.
