Nuts and Berries Cocktail recipe

A nuts and berries drink is a classic creamy cocktail with Frangelico and Chambord. The flavor combination is the perfect blend of hazelnut liqueur and raspberry liqueur, and smoothed out with half and half. Serve it for a brunch party or as an after dinner drink, or pair it with simple appetizers.

If you like to drink your dessert or you just love sweet creamy drinks, then this nuts and berries cocktail is for you!

This delicious cocktail recipe is nice to sip on with appetizers, or to serve after dinner. It’s easy to make with just 3 ingredients and the combination of flavors is a favorite among guests.

For another creamy drink try this cherry almond cream cocktail or my easy white chocolate martini.

How to make Nuts and Berries

You’ll need a cocktail shaker for this one, but in a pinch you can simply stir the drink in a glass with ice.

  1. Measure – Add all three ingredients into a cocktail shaker that’s half filled with ice.
  2. Shake – Put the lid on and give it a brisk shake for about 5 seconds.
  3. Strain – Pour it through the strainer and into your glass of choice.


You can use another cream product like skim milk or regular milk, heavy cream or light cream, and even Bailey’s Irish Cream. These will give you a different consistency and change the flavor somewhat, but it’s still delicious.

Make it non-dairy – Use soy milk, almond or other nut milk, or oat milk instead of half and half.

How to serve it

  • Use a small 4-ounce glass without ice, or a 6-ounce glass with ice (on the rocks).
  • Pour it into a martini glass or champagne coupe.

PARTY TIP: Make a party pitcher to serve a crowd. Just use 2 cups of half and half, with 1/2 cup each of Frangelico and Chambord.


What is Frangelico?

It’s a sweet liqueur that has the flavor of hazelnuts.

What can I substitute for Frangelico?

You can use another brand like DeKuyper, or switch it out for Amaretto. However, Amaretto has the flavor of almonds but still gives you the “nuts” flavor for this drink.

What is Chambord?

It’s a sweet liqueur that has the flavor of raspberries.

What can I substitute for Chambord?

You can use Creme de Cassis for this drink, which will give you the flavor of black currants. You can also use a blackberry liqueur instead.

Frangelico Drinks

One of the most classic flavor combinations is Frangelico and milk, but there are many other ways to drink it.
