With only 12 days until Christmas we thought we’d share a holiday drink we found on Moncheri Bridals that is not only festive but looks gorgeous to boot! Wouldn’t these look divine served up at your Christmas party? We used a Shiraz Rose for ours so there wasn't much of an ombre effect, but if you really want that ombre look, use any white wine; don't feel limited to an expensive champagne. Recipe below.
- 1 cup fresh blackberries
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup water
- 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 1 bottle champagne
- In a small saucepan, combine blackberries, sugar and water. Bring to a boil on high heat and then reduce to a simmer and let cook for 12 ~ 15 minutes. The blackberries will become soft and bright in colour and a pinkish purple syrup will form. Take off the heat and drain the blackberries, keeping the syrup in a separate bowl. Set both aside and allow to cool.
- Once blackberries and simple syrup are cooled, spoon about 4 tablespoons of syrup into the bottom of each champagne flute.
- Top with champagne.
- Garnish with fresh blackberries or the cooked blackberries and a spring of rosemary ~ enjoy!
