Servings 1 cocktail
FOR THE CRANBERRY MIXTURE
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 cups cranberry juice
- 2 cups cranberries
- 4 or 5 large fresh rosemary sprigs
- 2 tbsp sliced ginger - sliced in big chunks
FOR THE COCKTAIL
- 2 tbsp cranberry mixture
- 4 oz chilled sparkling wine
In a small sauce pot, combine the sugar, juice, rosemary and ginger. Bring it to a boil and let the mixture simmer for about 30 mins or until the cranberries soften and pop open. Remove the rosemary sprigs and mash the cranberries pretty well. Simmer for another little bit until the mixture gets thick and syrupy (maybe 15 - 20 mins). Remove from heat and let the syrup cool completely. It will store in the fridge for a week easily.
When you are ready to make your mimosas, add 2 tablespoons of the cranberry mixture to each glass if you are using flutes. If you make these in wine glasses, you might want to use a bit more of the mixture. Top with chilled sparkling wine, give it a little stir and serve.
