The Sweet Taste of Victory
Spirits blogger Hal Wolin invented The Sweet Taste of Victory after taking his first sip of Chambord, a black raspberry liqueur accented with vanilla and spices. Really, it’s fantastic with any good raspberry or blackberry liqueur.
The original recipe as printed in Imbibe magazine was a bit too sweet, calling for equal parts of liqueur and vanilla syrup. We’ve scaled the syrup back just a bit to let the other flavors shine.
- 2 parts Bourbon
- ¾ part Raspberry liqueur or Blackberry liqueur
- ½ part Vanilla syrup
- 2 dashes Creole bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail or coupe glass. Garnish with a few skewered raspberries or blackberries.
