This Chambord and Champagne Cocktail with Raspberry Syrup is the perfect drink for New Year's, Valentine's Day, or any other evening you want to make special with a glass of champagne or prosecco.
Why This Recipe Works
- It's a perfect cocktail for a celebration - Champagne and prosecco are usually considered to be a fancier drink than any other alcohol or regular wine. And I agree! The bubbles always make it more fun and special. The raspberry liqueur (Chambord) and the homemade raspberry syrup give it a beautiful pink color. It could be served for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, a simple date night, or New Year's Eve.
- It's made with only three ingredients - All you need is Champagne or Prosecco (I usually opt for the Prosecco because it's more affordable), Chambord, and raspberry simple syrup. I recommend making your own with fresh or frozen raspberries but you can buy it premade or just use plain simple syrup.
- Perfect for large groups - Because this drink doesn't need to be shaken and doesn't need ice, or any other fancy tools, it's easy to serve to bigger groups. You just divide the liqueur, syrup, and champagne between all your glasses and serve!
You only need three ingredients for this drink and no fancy tools which makes it perfect for serving it to a lot of people. You don't need to use a cocktail shaker or anything else, just mix your ingredients right in the serving glass!
- Chambord liqueur - Chambord is a raspberry liqueur. It comes from France and it's 16.5% abv. It's a little pricier but lasts a long time and you can use it in a ton of different cocktails. I recommend trying it in this Hibiscus Raspberry Margarita! If you don't want to splurge on Chambord, you can make this cocktail with just raspberry syrup instead but I recommend giving it a try if you can.
- Raspberry Simple Syrup - I use this syrup for so many drinks, I made a separate post on it! It's made with fresh or frozen raspberries, water, maple syrup or sugar, and vanilla extract.
- Champagne or Prosecco - Either one works, I like using a Rose prosecco for this cocktail but you can use regular prosecco. I recommend choosing dry because you are adding syrup too.
Making this cocktail couldn't be easier!
The best glass for this cocktail is a champagne glass. Either a flute, coupe, or tulip glass. I went with a flute but you can choose any glass you have or like!
Pour the raspberry liqueur into your glass, then the raspberry syrup, and swirl them around. This is optional but it helps to mix the two together more.
Top up your drink with chilled champagne or prosecco and top with fresh raspberries for garnish, they'll float on top.

Chambord is a raspberry liqueur. Its alcohol content is 16.5%. If you can't get a hold of it, you can skip it in this cocktail and just use the raspberry syrup. It can be used in a lot of cocktails - try it in a raspberry margarita in place of Cointreau!
Yes, I like mixing sparkling water with just the raspberry syrup. It's simple but makes for a tasty soft drink.
They're both sparkling wines. Champagne can only be made in the Champagne region in France. Prosecco is sparkling wine is mainly made in Italy but can be made anywhere. Champagne is always more expensive.
