This French Kiss cocktail is a simple and elegant sparkling drink with just the right amount of sweetness and the perfect color.
You know what you sometimes just need? Bubbly. Luckily, we typically always have a bottle (or two) on hand just for those occasions, typically a cava or a prosecco.. My studly husband knows that when I’m sad, his first question is, “Bubbly?” And because I also have a love for Chambord, thus, the French Kiss was created!
This week has totally warranted bubbly. And special bubbly. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink a mimosa any time of the day. But for this night, we wanted something just as easy, but just kicked up a notch. So we added a touch of Chambored, a raspberry flavored liquor.
So, a glass of bubbly, with just a touch of Chambord for color (it’s a strong flavored liquor so you only need a slight splash), and we had what we dubbed, a French Kiss. Because bubbly = special occasions = New Years = midnight kiss + Chambord = France = … well, that was enough for me. Or, French Kiss because the Chambord just ‘kisses’ the bubbly. 🙂 Either way, we had a quick and easy little cocktail. Perfect for the night of bubbly, snuggles, popcorn, and a movie, the ideal way to end a super stressful, long week.
