Agave nectar can be found at most liquor stores in range of the simple syrup. Simple syrup can be substituted, but it doesn't have the same flavor.

Sweetness is a relative thing so you can cut the agave down by half or more if your general penchant is for lightly sweet and leave it "as is" if you generally like sweet drinks. This was created for a drinker who doesn't like the dryness of champagne and relative to using something like cassis in similar proportion is the same save the agave is lower glycemic so it tastes a good deal sweeter to the tongue than the actual sugars it has in it.

Requires twice as much champagne as the recipe calls for. Very good with the proper ratio but it's cloyingly sweet as written. Read More

I'm not a champagne drinker at all but I'm hooked on this one. I used a cheap bottle of pink champagne and couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised by the sweet raspberry taste. Read More

I love champagne and I even like my champagne on the sweeter side but overall this recipe was just too sweet. I even tried adding more champagne to the mix and although it was better (about 6 oz instead of the 4 oz suggested) I didn't really like it. Better without the nectar and using less Chambord.

I make a version of this drink. It's too sweet with the nectar so I only use a splash and I add muddle raspberries and a little vodka to the mix. It is amazing but deadly!!! Read More

I don't like champagne at all so when I was gifted a bottle from my co-worker I set out to figure out what I could do with it to make it drinkable. Answer- this recipe! I tried several but this was the best bar none! It was so deliciously yummy and as long as it stayed cold it was perfect. It was on the sweet side so if you don't like sickeningly sweet drinks you probably won't like this one. Read More

Since the Raspberry liquor was going to be 35 and I wanted to serve this at an afternoon gathering I was able to replace the liquor with Torani Raspberry syrup. Was very good without the extra alcohol. Read More
