A gorgeous and classy cocktail option, this Blackberry Champagne Sparkler is fun and festive for any get together. Best of all, it’s super easy to make the blackberry simple syrup ahead of time.
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup organic sugar
- 1 bottle Prosecco or sparkling wine
- 4 oz gin
- simple syrup (for moistening the glass rims for sugar garnish)
- Dell Cove Spices’ Bronze Cocktail Rim Sugar
In a small saucepan, make a blackberry simple syrup: Bring your water, sugar and fruit to a boil. Next, turn down the heat so your syrup comes to a simmer – and be sure to STIR CONTINUALLY! Let the syrup simmer for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the fruit is soft and the syrup has turned a dark pink or soft red color.
Remove your pan from the heat, scoop out our berries and let the syrup cool completely. (You can make this up to a week before you use it. Just let it cool and store in the refrigerator.)
Take your chilled champagne glasses and rim the glasses with Dell Cove Spices’ Bronze cocktail rim sugar. Set aside.
Carefully add 1 oz of gin in each glass. Next, add 2 oz of your homemade simple syrup to each glass. Top each glass off with your sparkling wine and serve.
