A five-star liqueur, made with 'black raspberries' and other bramble fruits, infused in aged cognac. Perfect for dressing up desserts or sweetening a cocktail. And anyone who can enlighten me as to how the French 'black raspberry' differs from the British 'blackberry' will earn extra bonus points.
Discovered this via daughter in a Miss Martini. A delicious combination of cream, vodka and Chambord and raspberries. Like a rich fruity alcoholic melting ice cream.

wet a shot glass rim and dip it in icing sugar. Fill the glass with Chambord and add double cream (sits on top). Tastes like a Jammy Donut

This is a wonderful liquor which I discovered thanks to Thewhiskyexchange.com as it is not sold in Singapore. It really has a nice red fruit fragrance and goes real well with champagne and in other cocktails.

If picking in the wild, Blackberry bear later (Mid July thru August) and the underside of the leaves are pale green, where as the Raspberry leaves are silvery and bear earlier (late May thru June).

The way to tell the difference is that a raspberry (any colour) is hollow in the centre. A blackberry is not.

I'm french. In french, a raspberry is a "framboise", it comes from the raspberry bush (Rubus idaeus), whether it's black, red, yellow, orange, amber, or white. Those are types of raspberries but still raspberries. The blackberry ("mûre" in french) comes from another tree (the blackberry bush, Morus), blackberries and raspberries are different fruits.
