Romantic French Raspberry 75 Cocktail for Valentine’s Day

Sharing is caring!

What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with a delightful Champagne cocktail? Introducing the French Raspberry 75!

The original French 75, a classic dating back to the early 1900s, gets a modern and romantic twist with the addition of Chambord, a delectable raspberry liqueur.

This updated version is not only visually stunning, thanks to the use of Empress Gin with its lovely purple hue, but it’s also incredibly flavorful.

Let’s dive into how to make this simple yet flavorful cocktail!


  • 1 oz Gin
  • 1/2 oz Chambord
  • 1/2 oz Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
  • 1 Splash Champagne
  • 1 Raspberry for Garnish

Choosing Your Ingredients

In the original French 75 recipe, simple syrup is a key component.

However, in this romantic rendition, the raspberry liqueur takes center stage, eliminating the need for additional sugar.

Whether you opt for the unique Empress Gin with its citrus notes or stick to the classic regular gin, this cocktail is a perfect fit for your Valentine’s Day plans.


1. Mixing the Base

Start by grabbing your Cocktail Shaker and fill it with ice. Add the Gin, Chambord, and Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice. Shake vigorously to blend the flavors.

2. Straining and Serving

Strain the mixture into a classy champagne flute, creating an elegant base for your cocktail.

3. Adding the Bubbly Magic

Top off your creation with a generous splash of Champagne or Prosecco. The choice is yours, but a Brut Champagne is recommended for its dry profile that complements the other ingredients.

4. Final Touch – Raspberry Garnish

Elevate your cocktail with a final touch of romance by garnishing it with a fresh, plump Raspberry. This not only adds visual appeal but also enhances the overall taste.

Presentation Tips

If you’re planning a cozy night in by the fire, consider pairing this delightful beverage with some special appetizers.

Fresh shrimp, crab delights, or red grape bruschetta make for perfect companions to your romantic evening.

Glassware Recommendation

Investing in elegant glassware can enhance the overall experience. Look for different-shaped flutes on Amazon, ensuring they complement the sophistication of this Valentine’s Day cocktail.


Whether you’re celebrating with a special someone or treating yourself, this Romantic French Raspberry 75 Champagne Cocktail is a delightful choice.

Quick to prepare and bursting with flavor, it’s the perfect addition to your Valentine’s Day celebration.

Cheers to love and happiness! Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo
