My Velvet Elvis

* 5 points to whomever can tell me where this is from - Googling it is cheating! *

My inner pretty pretty princess is absolutely thrilled with this bottle of Chambord. Its so round and small, cute and gilded and golden gaudy. Squee!

Chambord is a French black raspberry liqueur. Its smells like raspberry syrup, and tastes like spiked raspberry syrup. And I have found my new favorite liqueur. I came across a recipe from Jack Daniels called the Velvet Elvis, in celebration of what would have been The King's 75th birthday this year. It is sweet and bubbly, and somehow doesn't make me think of Elvis in the least. Maybe if it included peanut butter and bananas?

By the way, remove the soda and you have a Velvet Jack.

Velvet Elvis

1 oz. Jack Daniels Whiskey
1 oz. Chambord
Splash of Sweet and Sour
Splash of lemon-lime soda

In a rocks glass with ice combine all of the ingredients and stir. Enjoy (responsibly, of course)!

Now where did I leave my tiara...

Oooh, you know your cocktails too! I am such a boring drinker I have to say. But these sound lovely...

I'm trying to branch out beyond the basic Jack & Coke, and deadly Long Island Ice Teas.
