There is always some new speciality drink making the rounds at the swankiest bars and restaurants, whether it is a hand crafted cocktail that features elderberry syrup or a new twist on a Moscow Mule. But here’s the thing…you can never go wrong with the classics, especially when it comes to cocktails. So I’ve found a way to put my own personal spin on bubbly…the Twig ‘n Berry cocktail.
The Twig ‘N Berry Cocktail
Glass of champagne or Prosecco
Splash of cranberry juice
Handful of fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary
Even better? The recipe is versatile and you can include whatever fruit and herbs are currently in season as your “twig” and “berry.” In the spring, I love to substitute orange juice, strawberries, and thyme to put a fruity spin on a traditional mimosa.
The Twig ‘N Berry cocktail is the perfect holiday drink because it is light, refreshing and takes no time at all to create. It even looks a bit like a Christmas tree with the rosemary sprig…you can even trade a sprig of mint if you are looking for something to refresh your guests’ breath at a dinner party. And if you want to get REALLY fancy, you can even serve the cocktail in a sugar rimmed glass. Cheers!
