Sparkling Blackberry Basil Cocktail

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 5 minutes
Serves 4-6

8-10 large fresh or frozen blackberries
3 T. fresh basil, torn
¼ c. honey, preferably local
¼ c. water
4 oz. Elderflower liqueur (optional)
1 750 ml bottle Prosecco, chilled

Garnish: (optional)

Fresh blackberries
Sprigs of fresh basil


  1. Add the blackberries, basil, honey, and water to a small saucepan set over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is heated through and starts to thicken, approximately 4-5 minutes. Gently press on blackberries while heating to release juices.
  2. Remove from heat and strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove solids. Reserve remaining liquid and set aside to cool.
  3. If using, divide the Elderflower liqueur among four champagne flutes, along with a drizzle of the blackberry simple syrup. Finish by topping off each glass with some chilled Prosecco.
  4. Garnish each glass with 2-3 fresh blackberries and a sprig of fresh basil, if desired, before serving. Enjoy!
