Red Raspberry Champagne Cocktail Recipe:
Try this as a winter or christmas champagne cocktail with fresh raspberries and a rosemary stick. That evergreen touch brings in the red green Christmas vibe.
- We used barefoot bubbly moscato Spumate Champagne (mini bottle 4 pack). Brut Champagne or your favorite will also work fine.
- Grenadine (a dash)
We use a tall chilled champagne flute for this drink.
Our choice for garnish is red raspberries to mirror the raspberry flavor of the chambord and the additional red color added by the grenadine.
You can stop right there. The raspberries make a nice garnish without the fresh rosemary stick.
The rosemary adds that green winter and Christmas vibe. And it’s own scent and flavor.
About Champagne Bubbliness:
We tried dipping the rosemary branch into sugar for a snowy icy winter effect.
Ummm…No. Kayti filled the glass with champagne, grenadine and chambord. Then she added the raspberries. THEN the sugared rosemary went in.
The sugar reacted with the bubbly and EXPLODED all over the counter.
We had about half of the champagne left after Kayti realized it would NOT stop expelling champagne foam with the sugar in there.
Flat Champagne is the result. And a half empty glass. Not good.
Sugared rosemary is not recommended for this cocktail.
TIPS on retaining the bubbles in your Champagne:
If you love a fizzy champagne with tickling CO2 bubbles exploding happily in your nose here’s a few tips to preserve those bubbles.
- Chill your sparkling wines or Champagnes before serving. This slows down the gas molecules. (ours was at room temperature which may be part of the problem we had.)
- Pour your bubbly into the glass at an angle.
- Use a champagne flute to keep the surface area of your glass small.
