The Raspberry Vodka Chambord Cosmopolitan is a beautiful, festive and delicious cocktail. Make this your signature holiday drink! Serve it at parties, family gatherings, or a Tuesday night at home. There really isn’t a bad time to enjoy this sweet, flavorful, ruby red adult beverage.
It’s time for November’s drink of the month and this Raspberry Vodka Chambord Cosmopolitan is a festive and delicious cocktail! It’s perfect for the holidays, or any time of year really. Why limit a delicious drink to just the holidays, right? This version of the cocktail made famous by the ladies on Sex and the City is just a little fancier with the additions of Chambord and raspberry vodka.
You can use store bought raspberry vodka, but it’s so easy to make your own, and it’s so good. And it’s not a one trick pony, you can also use the homemade raspberry vodka in a Raspberry Vodka Mule!
This cosmo recipe also features orange liqueur and Chambord black raspberry liqueur. You can use any orange liqueur you like, I had Grand Marnier on hand because I’m a big fan of margaritas! Grand Marnier is an orange flavored liqueur that has been produced since 1880. It’s made in France from a blend of Cognac brandy, distilled essence of bitter orange, and sugar. It really is delicious.
You probably have Chambord in your bar from that time this summer when we made Ginger Peach Grown Up Slushies, right? I like to have more than one drink recipe if I’m going to buy a specialty liqueur, and this is a perfect cocktail for your Chambord. Besides, who wouldn’t want that beautiful bottle on their bar cart?
We’ll round out our cosmopolitan with a little cranberry juice (a must in any cosmo) and fresh lime juice.
The preparation is very simple. Measure all your ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice, then shake, shake, shake! Pour the cosmo into a coupe or martini glass, garnish with a little lime wedge, and enjoy. You could also garnish with a fresh cranberry around the holidays if you want to be extra festive.
