The name 'Champagne and Chambord' clearly states what this cocktail is all about, and there are no surprises. It is simply a mixed drink of Champagne and Chambord, nothing else.
For all of its simplicity, this is one of the great Champagne cocktails because the Chambord adds a touch of rich, fruity sweetness in a subtle way that allows you to still appreciate the wine. It is a fabulous drink for romantic dinners or any occasion that requires a bit of bubbly to add to the celebration.
- Pour the Chambord into a champagne flute.
- Fill with chilled Champagne.
Tip: Make this cocktail immediately before serving so the wine remains effervescent.
How Strong is the Champagne and Chambord?
Let's err on the small side and assume that we need 6 ounces of wine to fill a Champagne flute. With that, we can estimate that the average Champagne and Chambord cocktail has an alcohol content of about 13% ABV (26 proof). This is just one point higher than the average Champagne, so the Chambord does not really make much of an impact in making the drink stronger.
