Valentine’s inspired Rosemary & Blackberry Pink Drink

10/02/2019

Just like that, January is behind us and we are hurtling towards Valentine’s day – a bitter sweet one for me this year as my ‘baby boy’ turns ten!  With the romantic holiday literally a few days away, our clever Marli, who does a lot of the behind the scenes work here on the blog, came up with the brilliant idea to share a cocktail recipe that may just be the ideal bevvy to celebrate this fun ‘holiday’. Whether your love is well-worn or just blossoming, we’ve got you covered for a pretty pink drink that’s bound to impress your chosen company. The hubster and I will most certainly be celebrating 10 years of this parenting gig.

We whipped these little beauties up in less than 10 minutes, which is how cocktails should be. Easy, no fuss, and delicious.  So for those of you planning a romantic evening or a *Galentine’s jolly this drink tastes just as pretty as it looks.

(*observed on February 13, the day before Valentine’s Day, Galentine’s Day celebrates platonic friendships, usually among women…. because I had to look it up!)

You can garnish this drink with any herbs you have on hand. Mint, rosemary, basil or thyme are all great compliments. For a mocktail option top it up with sparkling water or sparkling grape juice instead of bubbly. And if you’re feeling as creative as Marli was, try some fruit infused ice cubes in cute shapes like the X’s and hearts below.

INGREDIENTS: 

FOR THE COCKTAIL

1 bottle of your favorite Prosecco or champagne(sparkling water for a non-alcoholic option)

FOR THE BLACKBERRY SYRUP

– 1/3 cup Blackberries
– 1/3 cup sugar
– 1/3 cup water

FOR THE GARNISH

– Pomegranate seeds
– Blackberries
– Blueberries
– Rosemary

PREPARATION:

Bring the water, blackberries and sugar to boil. Turn to low and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the blackberries and let the syrup cool.  Add 2 tablespoons of syrup to the bottom of each glass. Top with champagne and garnish with a sprig of Rosemary, berries and pomegranate seeds.

Enjoy!

  • Did I mention I got a new floor? 🤪😂 #laminateflooring #waterresistant #wholenewworld #livingroom #flooring #homeinspo #houseofhawkeshq #finally #mydomaine #myhome #myhomevibe #dubaiinteriors
  • Yesterday I assisted at a @fronteriors installation at the beautiful home of @shoestova - she opted for our brand new slatted doors in grey with matte black handles and the combination is ace! We love seeing customers play with the options to achieve their individual vision.

  • There's nothing quite like that first night back in your own bed. #home
  • I can't quite explain how happy I was to open the front door and see our new flooring all finished when I got home this morning. Home sweet home just got sweeter. When I left last week, @floorworldllc were still working on the installation and they've done such a great job on the finishing touches. Feeling all the good feel this Monday morning. Now to attend to that to do list!

  • I'm on a quick trip to Portugal which turned into a very spontaneous girls catch-up when my cousin from Dubai joined me and a friend of ours flew in from England to meet us. We found such a cool little villa on @airbnb that overlooks the rice fields in Carvarhal, Portugal.  Enjoying the end-of-summer beautiful weather. Happy Friday! X
