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.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Pour the Chambord into a champagne flute.
  2. 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.
