Our rich crisp Estate Brut meets ripe blackberry and a splash of craft gin for this light, refreshing apertif.
In a small saucepan, bring blackberries, water, and sugar to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until the blackberries are soft and the simple syrup has turned to a bright pink/redish color.
Remove from heat, drain blackberries, and allow to cool. This step can be done well in advance, as the syrup will keep for at least one week in the refrigerator.
Begin by adding 1 ounce of gin followed by 1-1.5 ounces of homemade blackberry simple syrup to each glass. Next drop two blackberries in each glass. Fill the rest of the glass with Estate Brut sparkling wine and enjoy!
