Chambord is one of those liqueurs I never know quite what to do with, that is until now. This is nicely balanced little cocktail.

Ingredients:
2 part bourbon
1 part chambord
Dash of bitters

Combine in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, pour & enjoy.

Ah summertime. Summer has been a little slow to start this year, but it appears to finally be here. I found this cocktail recipe in the Epicurious iPhone app. The chambord gives a little something extra without being too sweet. It is a nice refreshing cocktail for a warm summer evening.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 oz gin
1 TBSP dry vermouth
1 TBSP chambord
1 TBSP lime juice
1/3 – 1/2 c seltzer
Lime slice
Ice

Combine lime juice and booze in a tall glass, stir, add seltzer, stir. Add ice and garnish with a lime wedge.
