Hi, friends! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas! We’re back this week with a blackberry sage bubbly cocktail idea just in time for New Year’s Eve!blackberry sage bubbly new year's eve cocktail

I recently experimented with making homemade simple syrup in different flavors using spices and fruits. The blackberry sage combo was so delish I thought I’d share it with you guys. Add a splash to your New Year’s Eve bubbly to give it some extra pizazz or use it as a mixer in a spirit based cocktail. Either way, it’s a delish addition to your New Year’s imbibing.

Blackberry Sage Bubbly Cocktail Blackberry sage simple syrup ingredients

Recipe: Blackberry Sage Simple Syrup

1 cup honey (if you’re not into honey, sugar will work just as well)
1 cup water
1 6oz package fresh blackberries
3-4 sprigs of fresh sage

Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to boil.
Simmer on low for 5 minutes. Berries should start to release. I mashed mine up a little with a wood spoon.
Remove from heat and let cool.
Steep for at least 30 minutes. 1-2 hours is better.
Pour through a fine mesh sieve into small jars.
Store refrigerated.
