Pop the corks, it’s time for pretty spring cocktails! This blackberry blush Cocktail is perfect for spring brunches, Mother’s Day, showers or any day that calls for a drink as pretty as it is delicious (Hello girlfriends?… When will you be over?)
Makes 1 cocktail
- 4 blackberries
- 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp simple syrup (hyperlink to simple syrup)
- Prosecco or your favourite sparkling wine
- Cheese cloth
- Ice cubes
- Cocktail shaker
- Champagne coupe or flute
- Cocktail pick
Cut a piece of cheesecloth and fold it over on itself until it is 4 layers thick. Make sure it is large enough to cover the strainer of your cocktail shaker. The cheesecloth will be used later to catch the little bits of blackberry, leaving you with a clear blush coloured cocktail.
Place 2 blackberries, lemon juice and simple syrup in the cocktail shaker. Add ice cubes and shake vigorously to combine and break up the blackberries. Place the prepared square of cheesecloth over the strainer of the cocktail shaker and hold it in place as you pour the mixture through the cheesecloth into a champagne coupe or flute. Fill the glass with champagne or sparkling wine. Thread the 2 remaining blackberries onto the cocktail pick and add it to the glass to garnish.
