Last minute Valentine: Chambord berries in Champagne

See also

One of the great Valentine's Day traditions is taking that special someone you love out to dinner to a fine restaurant and enjoying a romantic dinner. With the way the economy is today, this isn't quite feasible. So this year instead of going out, enjoy a romantic dinner at home and end the dinner with a touch of classic elegance.

What better way is there to tell someone you love them than with the natural sweetness of berries? Perhaps if you top those berries with the the elegance of Chambord and then float them all on the luxury of a fine Champagne!

Simple! Elegant! Erotic! The elements of a lovely Valentine's Day!

Ingredients needed to make Chambord Berries in Champagne (serves 2):

  • 1 cup blackberries, rinsed
  • 1 cup blueberries, rinsed
  • 1 cup strawberries, rinsed, hulled (stem removed) and quartered
  • 1/2 cup Chambord liqueur (raspberry flavored liqueur)
  • 2 cups Champagne

Steps:

  1. Layer the berries into two goblets (large wine glasses).
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of Chambord into each cup.
  3. Just before serving, fill the goblets with Champagne.
