Rosemary Champagne Cocktail

It’s officially Christmas week. It’s time for the festivities to begin, and I’m sure many of you have even started your celebrating already. We have been visiting the Christmas market here, and preparing for our little girl’s very first Christmas. Even though she won’t remember it, it’s definitely something to celebrate. And to me, a celebration means champagne.

Of course, a simple glass of champies is always good, but you can’t go wrong with a champagne cocktail either. It’s a classic drink, perfect for any celebration. I decided to infuse this one with a little fresh rosemary for an herbaceous twist, reminiscent of a Christmas tree – I almost name it “Christmas Tree Cocktail. But, I decided to be a little more obvious with the title instead.

Did you know that in order for a drink to qualify as a cocktail it must have at least 3 ingredients? Otherwise it’s just booze I guess. This rosemary champagne cocktail is made with an herb infused simple syrup, a bit of gin and a healthy dose of bubbles.

I made the rosemary syrup ahead of time, but it really just needs a little bit of time to cool down before using it. Nobody wants a warm cocktail. Unless that cocktail is supposed to be warm, like a spiked cider or a hot toddy. Either way, you want all these ingredients to be as cold as possible. Stick that gin in the freezer for a little bit and keep the champagne on ice until you’re ready to pour. Then pop that bottle and serve them up.
