What Is Chambord?
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.
Common drinks made from Chambord include the raspberry margarita, French manhattan, Kir Impérial, Chambord Daiquiri, Chambord royal spritzer and the French martini.
Our favourite use of the popular French liqueur is this easy Raspberry Gin Fizz Chambord Cocktail.
Travel to Taste the World’s Best Gins
There’s no better way to familiarize yourself with the best Gin and Chambord recipe then by planning a vacation to visit the world’s best gin distilleries.
The world’s most famous gins can be found in the United Kingdom as well as neighbouring Ireland. The booming gin trend has produced a high demand for premium gins produced by distilleries in Canada and America.
We’ve visited a handful of gin distilleries in Britain as well as a chic gin cocktail bar at the Shangri-La Hotel in Taipei. The gin craze has officially travelled from England to North America, Asia and beyond!
In Scotland we visited Edinburgh Gin for a tour and tasting before enjoying a road trip to the Isle of Islay, which is best known for its famous Islay whisky distilleries. One of the best things to do on the Isle of Islay is pay a visit to Bruichladdich Distillery, which produces its signature whisky as well as Botanist Gin.
In Brighton we visited a tiny micro-distillery called Brighton Gin, one of the best things to do in Brighton for G&T fans. We also stayed at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire to sip our way through the jaw-dropping home of renowned Bombay Sapphire.
Looking to plan the ultimate road trip of Canada to discover the best gins?
Our favourite Canadian gins include Ungava in Quebec, Tawse and Dillon’s in Niagara, Muskoka Brewery in Ontario cottage country, Kinsip House of Fine Spirits in Prince Edward County, North of 7 in Ottawa, Dixon’s in Guelph, Eau Claire Distillery in Alberta, Blackfox in Saskatoon, Ironworks Gin in Nova Scotia and Long Table Distillery in British Columbia.
Best Bartender Tools & Cocktail Equipment
Before hosting a swanky Raspberry Gin Fizz soiree you’ll need to ensure you have the best bartender tools and 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 bartenders 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.

Raspberry Gin Fizz Chambord Cocktail Ingredients
Our Chambord Gin Cocktail is made with fresh, premium ingredients:
- Gin: we suggest using Bombay Sapphire or Hayman’s of London.
- Chambord: is a raspberry flavoured liqueur that has been produced in the Loire Valley, France since the late 17th-century.
- Lime Juice: we always suggest juicing fresh limes as you’ll taste the difference. Do not use store bought lime juice!
- Raspberries: we suggest using fresh raspberries but you can thaw frozen raspberries if it’s all you have access to. Only use fresh raspberries for the garnish. You can float them in the drink or use a cocktail pick to skewer a few fresh berries and gently rest them on the rim and floating ice in the glass.
- Soda Water: we suggest using premium Fever Tree Club Soda. You could also use sparkling water from your own Soda Stream machine.

We love serving this Raspberry Gin Cocktail recipe during the holiday season. The festive drink features a red liquid thanks to the muddled raspberries and green lime slice as the garnish. It’s such a crowd pleaser at Christmas parties during the holiday season.
We also love to serve this drink during the summer months when fresh berries are in season. The Raspberry Gin Fizz sparkles on the tongue, offering a refreshing cocktail recipe for a hot day.
If you don’t like or have soda water at home and enjoy a sweeter sip feel free to replace with tonic water.
