Cocktail Friday: The Spellbound Cocktail

Every good party needs a signature cocktail to greet guests with, and Halloween is no exception...

The Spellbound Cocktail

  • 2 cups fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh rosemary
Simmer blackberries, sugar, water, and rosemary in a small heavy saucepan, uncovered, stirring occasionally, until thickened and reduced by about two thirds – about 20 minutes. Then, pour the mixture through a fine sieve set over a glass to strain out the rosemary, and let stand 5 minutes (there will be about 1/3 cup).  Chill syrup, covered, until cold.
When you’re ready to mix the cocktails, use a nice Prosecco and add about 1 1/2 teaspoons of syrup into each drink...and celebrate Friday!
