I tweaked a simple champagne cocktail for Disney Dinners: Beauty and the Beast. La Belle et la Bête is a mix of Chambord, a French mixed berry liqueur, and Veuve Clicquot, my favorite champagne. It’s French and fabulous and whimsical, thanks to the strawberry roses on the side.
Shout out to my friend Rebecca for successfully carving these roses! She did a fantastic job. There are tons of video tutorials all over the internet. Just search “strawberry roses.”
La Belle et la Bête
Strawberries for garnish
1/4 oz Chambord liqueur
Veuve Clicquot Champagne
- Wash and pat strawberries dry. Set strawberry on a cutting board stem side down. Use a sharp pairing knife to carve thing slices all around, never cutting all the way through, to form petals. Make a small slit through the stem and secure on the side of champagne glasses.
- Pour 1/4 oz Chambord liqueur in a champagne flute. Top with Veuve Clicquot.
