Getting Funky With Chambord
Sometimes you’ve just got to try something new. White Russians and Onion Juice can only go so far and Wifey and I wanted to expand our palate. Tradition says we just go into the cupboard ‘o booze try and find something to mix. I pull out the creme de cocao and Irish cream. Looking deep into the cupboard, I see some vanilla vodka. Nice start on this one. I remembered we had bought some Chambord a couple of years ago for a recipe, and I thought it would go well the other ingredients. We mixed it up and after a few trials, this is what we came up with:
1 part Creme de Cocao (Kaluha would work with this as well)
1 part Vanilla Vodka (regular vodka is fine)
1 part Irish Cream
1/2 part Chambord
Fill a drink shaker with ice and add the ingredients and shake for 30 seconds. Strain into a cocktail glass and enjoy. Watch out, though, they will come up and bite you real quick!
