Another fine aperitif, this cocktail was devised by Boulderite artist/designer Stephen Smith under the watchful eye of the FlyingCracker staff. The Chambord, a raspberry liqueur, lends a unique joie de la vie to the proceedings. Earlier in the evening we sampled the Delilah, the Evan, and an Anejo Highball, so Stephen had a good idea of his artistic goal. Of course all this was preceded by a classic Crested Butte mountain bike ride - Snodgrass to Upper Loop to Upper Upper to Farris Creek/Strand Hill and Strand Bonus. Talk about inspiration! If you are wondering what to do with the Chambord your grandmother bequeathed you in her will, this is the answer.
