Now these are my kind of shots!

Made with Chambord, a raspberry liqueur, and topped with cream, they are easy to drink and stupid easy to make.

I first had one of these shots years ago in a local bar back in the UK. They were called Jammy Dodger shots. My British readers will be familiar with these cookies, and for my North American friends, they are similar to a linzer raspberry cookie. They taste just like this childhood favorite…with added booze!

Ingredients

You only need three simple ingredients to make these sweet Chambord shooters!

  • Sugar: Use granulated sugar for the rim. This really helps to created that cookie flavor and it’s non negotiable. I made a really thick sugar rim for mine to make it more festive, but you can make it smaller if you like.
  • Chambord: A French raspberry liqueur. It’s fruity and sweet with a little tartness. It’s an easy liqueur to drink for those that aren’t big drinkers.
  • Heavy cream: Also known as double cream. This sits on top of the Chambord to create a deliciously creamy layer.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you layer a shot?

When you add the cream, don’t pour it straight into the Chambord. It will just sink to the bottom. Pour it slowly over the edge over the back of a teaspoon, with the edge of the teaspoon touching the inside of the glass. This will help to slow the cream so that it doesn’t break the surface.

Don’t worry if a little sinks in. It will go straight to the bottom and it will still taste good!

What size shot glasses should you use?

I used 1.5 ounce shot glasses for this recipe. Each shot contains one ounce of Chambord. You can use 1 ounce shot glasses if that’s what you have, just leave a little room at the top for the cream. If you prefer a bigger shot, use a 2 ounce glass and an ounce and a half of Chambord.

Can you make them ahead of time?

These Christmas shots take minutes to make and are best served as soon as you have made them so that the cream stays floating on the top. If you really want to, you can rim the glasses before serving.

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • These chambord shots can be served warm or chilled. If you want them chilled, just place the chambord bottle in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
  • The measurements are an estimate depending on the size of shot glass you are using. Add a little more chambord if your glasses are bigger.
  • Don’t overdo the cream layer or it will be way too creamy!
