Sometimes less is more, and that is definitely true when it comes to a Chambord and Prosecco cocktail. Made with a little Chambord and topped off with Prosecco, this cocktail is sweet, bubbly, and fun!

It’s very easy to make! Since there are only 2 ingredients, all you have to do is pour them into a champagne glass and serve.

This cocktail is similar to our champagne with grenadine and pomegranate mimosa. The main difference is that this drink is flavored with black raspberries and the others aren’t.

Substitutions

  • Use a different liqueur. We love Chambord and the flavor it lends to this cocktail, but there are other options if Chambord isn’t available.
    • Creme de Cassis: Try this blackcurrant flavored liqueur for a slightly tarter flavor.
    • Raspberry Simple Syrup: Raspberry simple syrup makes a good option for a non-alcoholic drink with a similar raspberry taste.
    • Creme de Mure: This blackberry liqueur is great for a deeper berry flavor.
  • Try a different bubbly. Processo is our pick but there are some other options if you’d rather use something different.
    • Champagne: Prosecco is Italian, but if you’d prefer a French sparkling wine, try champagne.
    • Cava: This is a Spanish sparkling wine and depending on the brand, often more budget-friendly.
    • Sparkling Water: For a non-alcoholic version with a fizzy touch, try sparkling water. Pair it with raspberry simple syrup for a completely alcohol-free version of Chambord and Prosecco.

Variations

  • Add Some Citrus:
    • Spritz of Lemon: Adds bright, citrus flavor.
    • Orange Slice: Gives the drink a sweet citrusy flavor.
    • Lime Juice: For a tangy kick that cuts through the sweetness of the liqueur.
  • Make it Sweeter:
    • Simple Syrup: Use simple syrup to sweeten the cocktail if desired.
    • Honey: Honey is a great alternative to simple syrup. It gives this drink a natural sweetness with a unique flavor.
    • Agave Nectar: A vegan alternative to honey.
  • Add Some Spice:
    • Ginger: Use some ginger simple syrup for a spicy kick.
    • Cinnamon Stick: Garnish with a cinnamon stick for a warm twist.

Equipment

This Christmas cocktail is minimal in so many ways, including the equipment. You only need a couple of things to bring it all together.

Here’s a quick list (Amazon affiliate links included).

  • Jigger: Used to measure out the Chambord. If you don’t have a jigger, use a kitchen scale or measuring cup and measure out 1 fluid ounce.
  • Measuring Cup: You’ll need a measuring cup to measure out the Prosecco. A kitchen scale works great, too! Just make sure it’s set to fluid ounces. If all else fails, you could always top off the glass with Prosecco and skip the measuring all together.
  • Champagne Glass: A fluted champagne glass makes a beautiful presentation, but any champagne glass will work.

Storage

There’s no need to store this holiday cocktail. Prepare it just prior to serving and enjoy immediately!

Tips

  • Chill Your Ingredients: Make sure both the Chambord and Prosecco are chilled before use. This keeps the cocktail cold longer and helps the Prosecco maintain it’s bubbly appearance.
  • Gentle Pouring: Pour the Prosecco gently into the glass to preserve its bubbles.
  • Use the Right Glass: A flute glass is ideal for this cocktail because it shows off the bubbles and maintains the drink’s effervescence.
