    If I wanted to add the Chambord to the pitcher instead of the glass, do you think it would turn out ok? I just something easier to serve for a party. If so how much? Thanks!

      Sure it would. Just add to your taste.SO for this, I would add 3/4 cup and go up from there if you wish. Sorry for the delay, we were away for vacation.
