This Blackberry Ombre Sparkler drink calls for the exact same prep.

My plan is to make a double batch of the berries on Valentine’s Day, using half for the cheese and half for these drinks.  Mega win win!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 bottle champagne

Instructions

  1. 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 approximately 15-17 minutes. The blackberries will become soft and bright in color and a pinkish purple syrup will form. Making sure it cooks down enough is essential to keeping the ombre effect. Take off of the heat and drain the blackberries, keeping the syrup in a separate bowl. Set both aside and allow to cool.
  2. Once blackberries and simple syrup are cooled, spoon about 4 tablespoons of syrup into the bottom of each champagne flute (this recipe makes 4 drinks)
  3. Top with champagne.
  4. Garnish with fresh blackberries or the cooked blackberries, and a sprig of rosemary.
  5. Cheers!

My drink did not stay ombré. When I poured in the champagne the whole thing mixed up. How did you keep the red layer from mixing?
    Becky Hardin
    I'm SO sorry about that Nicole! I think it might be an issue in the blackberries not cooking down enough and the syrup being too thin. I've updated the recipe to talk about that a bit. I didn't have any issue with the colors mixing and that's the only thing I can think of. I hate that it didn't work for you, I'm so sorry!
CHRISTINE
WHAT DID YOU TOP THE RIM WITH IN THE PHOTO? SUGAR? THANKS!
    Becky Hardin
    Hi Christine! It's just gold sprinkles :) Hope you have a great holiday!
Nicole
Hi! I've just come across this fabulous recipe and I'm keen to try it for my holiday party this weekend! However - fresh blackberries are quite expensive and hard to find in my local area this time of year... would frozen blackberries work instead? Or, would the recipe work with a blackberry liqueur like Chambord, instead of making the syrup by hand? Would love any advice you could give :)
Jenn
Hi, I l love the look of these. So festive! I was just wondering if there ends of being a heavy rosemary taste. .
    Becky Hardin
    No, since it's just a garnish it isn't bad. And you could totally leave that off if you don't like the essence of it in there (like my husband...hates it!) Enjoy!

    Becky Hardin

Kellie
