What Is A Chambord Liqueur Royale?
A Chambord Royale is a signature cocktail by the popular French black raspberry liqueur brand.
The simple 2-ingredient cocktail features Chambord topped with a dry sparkling wine like champagne, prosecco or cava.
The pretty pink cocktail is popularly served as a celebratory drink on Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and at Christmas parties.
Like a Mojito Royale, the “royale” in the drinks name references the fact that it features fancy champagne. An elegant sipper fit for a king or queen!
What Is Chambord Liqueur?
Chambord is a 16.5% abv raspberry flavoured liqueur modelled after a liqueur produced in the Loire Valley of France during the late 17th-century. It is said to have been introduced to Louis XIV during one of his visits to the château de Chambord. It was common during that time for liqueurs and cognac to be consumed with elegant meals.
Chambord is made from red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and cognac brandy.
Popular drinks made from Chambord include the raspberry margarita, French manhattan, Kir Impérial, Chambord Daiquiri, Chambord royal spritzer and Raspberry Bramble.
Our favourite use of the popular French liqueur is this easy Chambord Liqueur Royale Cocktail recipe.

Chambord Liqueur Royale Cocktail Recipe Tips
This bubbly Chambord Royale recipe is easy to make at home, ready to serve in under 5 minutes.
Our elegant champagne cocktail recipe serves one person. If you’re hosting a large gathering feel free to multiply the ingredients by the number of guests and muddle the drink in a festive punch bowl or jug.
An hour or two before you’re planning on serving drinks we suggest placing the Chambord and champagne bottle in the freezer so they are well chilled.
We like to garnish the glass with a cocktail pick featuring fresh raspberries but you can also muddle the berries into the glass before serving for a more casual affair.
Types Of Sparkling Wine
The traditional sparkling wine used in a Chambord Royale is champagne from France.
This recipe is very versatile. You can use any sparkling wine that fits your price point. We prefer Italian prosecco as it’s more affordable. We’ve also prepared the cocktail with local sparkling wines produced on vineyards in Beamsville, Niagara on the Lake, Prince Edward County, Vancouver Island and Osoyoos.
- Champagne: French sparkling wine. It tastes bubbly and fruity, with undertones of freshly baked bread.
- Prosecco: Italian sparkling wine. It’s a little sweeter than champagne: fruity and flowery, with notes of apple and pear.
- Cava: Spanish sparkling wine. It has more citrus notes and tends to be on the drier side.
Best Bartender Tools & Cocktail Equipment
Before hosting a swanky Chambord Royale cocktail soiree you’ll need to ensure you have the best bartender tools and cocktail equipment.
- Cocktail Kit: cocktail kits are the perfect gift for newbie mixology fans as they include basic bartender tools like a jigger, shaker and spoon.
- Cocktail Shaker: a bartender’s best friend. Purchase a premium cocktail shaker to muddle or shake up your favourite pink gin cocktails.
- Cocktail Glassware: make sure your bar is stocked with a selection of unique glassware to show off your favourite cocktail creations.
- Hawthorne Strainer: this unique strainer features tightly wound coils and perforated holes. It keeps ice and other large ingredients like lime wedges in your cocktail shaker rather than in the glass.
- Bar Spoons: slender and long bar spoons are a must-have when stirring drinks.
- Bottle Opener: easily open bottles of beer or cider with the flick of your wrist or purchase a corkscrew for fine wine.
- Pouring Spout: once you’ve opened a new bottle of gin insert these affordable pourers to make cocktail assembly a breeze.
- Cutting Board: purchase a petite cutting board for your bar to slice garnishes or citrus wedges like lime, orange, lemon or grapefruit.
- Ice Bucket: chill bottles of gin quickly in an ice bucket or keep by the bar when muddling gin mixers into cool creations.
- Ice Crusher: fans of the Mint Julep love an ice crusher.
- Ice Cube Kit: we suggest purchasing a selection of ice cube trays. Silicone styles are our favourite as they’re easy to clean and are available in various shapes and sizes.
- Jigger: use a jigger to accurately measure spirits, juices, syrups and shrubs.
- Juicer: invest in an electronic juicer or buy an affordable hand-held to easily juice fresh citrus like lemons and limes.
- Muddler: fans of the Mojito love a sturdy muddler to mix mint and lime. Muddler’s are handy for any cocktail featuring ingredients that need a pounding like fresh herbs or citrus wedges.
- Citrus Peeler & Zester: adorn your craft cocktails with a thick citrus peel or finer ribbons of lime or lemon zest.
- Rimmer: Bloody Mary and Caesar lovers should outfit their bar with a handy rimmer for salting and sugaring glassware.
