Why you’ll love this recipe
As well as looking so beautiful you could just reach out and grab a glass. I also love how beautiful this raspberry prosecco bellini tastes. It mixes together the sweet and fruity raspberry liqueur, the herby and earthy smell from the rosemary and the tart bubbly prosecco works a treat. I love creating drinks that mix taste and smell to create a wonderful champagne chambord cocktail.

RASPBERRY LIQUEUR (Affiliate links)
There are so many versions of raspberry liqueur out there but the most common and easy to get hold of in most supermarkets is Chambord.
How to make – step by step
- Firstly, chill your champagne flute or cocktail glass with. a big scoop of ice or pop it in the freezer wrapped in a damp tea towel for a few minutes.
- Measure and pour your raspberry liqueur, adding a few sprigs of rosemary and fresh cranberries to the glass.
- Add a lime twist and top with fizz. In my original recipe I made this a raspberry prosecco cocktail but you can use champagne for a champagne Chambord cocktail.
- Use frozen cranberries or raspberries work well as edible ice. But don’t eat the fresh cranberries are they are incredibly tart.
- Rosemary cocktails are perfect for parties as you can easily top up glasses with a little extra fizz!
- Swap out the cranberries for raspberries for a less festive chambord prosecco cocktail.

Gigglewater Prosecco in the Raspberry Prosecco Cocktail
I created this recipe using Gigglewater Prosecco. Gigglewater is the original name for an alcoholic beverage. It is a great name. I love it. I will now be talking referring to Prosecco as Gigglewater from now on.
Gigglewater was founded on the idea of living a life of balance and having fun – happiness & health are core to life.Catherine owner of Gigglewater
I hadn’t tried Gigglewater before but I have really enjoyed drinking it. (I received it as a gift to try). It’s fruity and bubble and above all fun. It is feels fun and calls to be shared among friends. It has a light smell of crisp fruits. The smell that reminds you of summer sunshine. I will have to get some more bottles for summer parties. Paring wise this is definitely an aperitif drink. Serve before food or with little nibbles so you can really appreciate the flavour.
I really like the bottle. It’s more unusual and more squat that regular bottles. It’s now a got lights in to add a little extra sparkle in time for Christmas.
It is a great drink to make ahead and just top up with Prosecco when you’re ready, just like the photos below. The little decoration flourishes really make this a special drink and people always want one with a little bit extra. It looks spectacular especially for Christmas. The rosemary and cranberries really show off the Christmas spirit. Pardon the pun.
What fruit goes with Prosecco?
Most fruits go with prosecco, personally, my favourite thing to mix with prosecco is raspberries and raspberry liqueur. It’s perfectly sweet and mixes with the sharp fizz of prosecco perfectly for a raspberry prosecco bellini.
What do you do with Chambord?
You mix Chambord with a soft drink like lemonade or tonic for a lighter drink or you can mix the liqueur with champagne for a luxurious champagne Chambord cocktail.
Should you refrigerate Chambord?
Whether you have opened it or not, your Chambord does not need to be refrigerated. It will stay fresh as long as you keep the lid on the bottle and keep it out of direct sunlight. Chambord does not need to be chilled for you to enjoy a cocktail.
What’s similar to Chambord?
The most famous substitute for Chambord is Crème de cassis, it’s a slightly sweeter version but just as delicious. Other raspberry liqueurs that you can use instead of Chambord is:
- Di Amore Raspberry
- Raspberry extract
- Ole Smoky Blackberry Moonshine
- Giffard Blackberry Liqueur
