This season, brunch is all about cocktails made with Chambord. The black raspberry liqueur is the perfect spirit for summer; it’s got all the sweetness of local berries and all the romance of its being made in a château in France.
Chambord is made with red and black raspberries, Madagascar vanilla, Moroccan citrus peel, honey and XO cognac. At the start of its production, whole raspberries and blackberries are soaked in French spirits for four weeks. The end result for its drinkers is much more immediate: a perfect summer’s day in four easy steps.
First, you rise and shine. Then, you #PunchAndBrunch.
In partnership with Chambord, Edible has joined forces with some of the East End’s best bartenders to blend together the berry-flavored sweetness of Chambord with the unparalleled beauty of the East End.
Ready to say bonjour? Chambord cocktails are available at each of the bars and restaurants featured below. So get ready to sip—and make those tonsils purr.

We won’t judge.

440 West Lake Drive, Montauk, NY 11954

- Their Chambord Cocktail: The Razz Ma Tazz. Made with Chambord, Hennessy, Aperol, and lemon.
3516 Montauk Highway, Sagaponack, NY 11962
- As Kurt Wenzel wrote in the New York Times late last year, “There are few things in the Hamptons more iconic than the road sign in Sagaponack that reads ‘Old Stove Pub.'” This is certainly true, and for good reason. The food at Old Stove Pub is good—and so, too, is the pub’s atmosphere.
- Their Chambord Cocktail: Coming soon.
43 Canoe Place Road, Hampton Bays, NY 11946
- A visit to Rumba will make you think you’ve died and gone to heaven—if your idea of heaven is a rum-soaked island somewhere in the Caribbean. With island-style cuisine and the sounds of reggae playing overhead, Rumba is about as close to the islands as you can get . . . y’know, without leaving this island.
