New Category: What The Heck Is…Chambord Royale?

July 12, 2008 at 12:17 am Leave a comment

Starting a new category today:  What The Heck Is…  There are so many times I am mixing a cocktail and it calls for some exotic or even an everyday alcoholic brew that is a mystery to me.  The name is common enough sometimes, but the actual flavor or origin of that particular liquid is unknown in my little amateaur bar.

Take for instance Chambord Royale.  I’ve seen the bottle, how could you miss it?  I bought it for a recipe, and I still don’t know what the heck it is.  My kids are fighting over the little gold crown cap right now.  It certainly looks like some kind of royal potion with its mysterious deep red, almost brown color.

The label sheds no light.  It’s a product of France and 33 proof, but what is it?  Let’s find out, thank goodness for Google:  According to the Chambord Royale website, Chambord is a black raspberry liqueur produced from the finest raspberries, black berries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, and cognac. It was first produced in the Loire Valley in the 17th century.
