Drink of the Week: The Sweet Taste of Victory

After three decades and perfectly timed with raspberry season, Chambord has freshened up the design of its iconic bottle (the recipe remains unchanged), and today’s Drink of the Week helps usher in the venerable liqueur’s new look.

Hal Wolin, keeper of the blog A Muddled Thought offers up The Sweet Taste of Victory, a richly flavored, yet refreshing summertime sipper. Chambord has long been popular for its blackberry-, raspberry- and vanilla-infused Cognac, and Wolin highlights each of those notes with the addition of bourbon, vanilla syrup and Peychaud’s bitters.
