Ingredients

  • 12 fresh blackberries
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 tbsp simple syrup*
  • 2 oz St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 4 fresh basil or sage leaves + extra for garnish (optional)
  • 8 oz chilled pink champagne or Prosecco


Directions

1 Place 6 blackberries on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet and freeze until solid (the frozen fruit will help keep your cocktail nicely chilled).

2 Place the lime juice, simple syrup, elderflower liqueur, basil leaves and remaining blackberries in a cocktail shaker and muddle to release the flavours.

3 Add some ice and shake well. Strain into two coupes and top with the champagne.

4 Garnish with the frozen blackberries, and an extra fresh basil leaf if desired.

Tip: *To make the simple syrup, boil 1 cup sugar with 1⁄2 cup water for 3 minutes, until the sugar crystals have dissolved. Simple syrup can be infused with lemon zest, orange zest or ginger to add extra flavour. Keeps well in an airtight container.

Makes: 2 servings.
