Rosemary Royale

This small pitcher is perfect to whip up for a small crowd - be brave and have friends over this weekend and don’t clean your house * You can do it * Buy some olives, almonds, and the ingredients for this modern spin on a French Classic and STAY IN!


Rosemary Royale
Serves 4-6 (6-8 ounce servings) in champagne coupes or flutes

1 c Ribena blackcurrant Syrup (available at Meijer!)
1 (750 mL) Prosecco or dry Sparkling Wine
Zest of one grapefruit
3 stems rosemary (more for optional garnish)
Blackberries (optional for garnish)

Make the Syrup: Combine 1 cup Blackcurrant Syrup with 3 sprigs rosemary and bring to a boil in a saucepan. When boiling, return to a simmer on low heat and zest grapefruit with a microplace over the pan until the whole thin outer layer of the grapefruit is zested. Do not zest the white part of the grapefruit flesh - it’s bitter! Boil for one minute longer, turn off heat and remove rosemary stems. Strain mixture over a fine mesh sieve into a glass measuring cup and allow syrup to cool a bit.

In a pitcher, combine Syrup with Sparkling Wine and stir to mix well. Optional garnish: cut rosemary to 3 inch pieces and stick into top of the blackberry
