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 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 percent 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.
