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!
